Just curious, why would you consider the "old technology" instead of 
using TFileStream (or any of the other TStream descendants).

I'm actually busy converting some old apps that used "t: Text" style 
coding, and replacing it with more modern Stream-style code, and it 
works really well. Streams are so much more flexible.
