i`m scared like heck : O
LOL, Terry, even ROTFLMAO i must notice : )
to open a file and search smth in it you have absolutely no need to
load it in memory - i just opened 485 mb pack from quake 3 with
Norton Commander (did you remember Peter? : D), that is '95 wintage -
just can`t find something more older. it took less than 500kb of
memory, so "I" will feel good even on 486 - playing Duke Nukem 3D! : P

Cheers : )
