I saw that but the problem is that there are varying number of items
on each line and a line is considered a record.
So I would anyway have to keep track of the lines.
With Read I guess it skips all whitespace including line endings and
this causes problems in identifying the content because of varying
number of items on each line.
The Readln approach followed by splitting in a stringlist is enough of
an improvement that I can use it.
