Hi Rudolph, The only I/O class that lets you start reading a file anywhere is the RandomAccessFile class. It provides a readLine method so you should be able to use it to start reading anywhere. I don't think you can tell it to skip so many lines though because the skipping only works with bytes. Regards, Manfred.
