in thread Why is file being slurped in instead of line by line?

I agree. However, he explained it as "To make your code works fine", and my issue was that the relevence could be misunderstood, being that the second point isn't going to make the code work any finer than it already did, or at least not in the way that the first point does. If that makes sense, that is.
