in reply to Numbers as a stream of letters

I was thinking of this as more of a storage benefit for homebrew ASCII databases, this will economize storage space on disk in applications where the database file is not compressed. After using the above code I noticed that CR and LF ASCII chars will appear in the files and thus mess up <FILE> operations...
