Have you looked at FileRead() and _FileReadToArray() in the help file?

Also, this >> Answer to most questions << should help in most of the questions you ask.

Last I checked, count was [optional].

Use _FileCountLines (need beta) to get the number of lines and give you the count.

one thing that i use alot when i want to do what you're wanting to do is:

$Text  = FileRead("C:\text.txt",FileGetSize("C:\text.txt"))

that reads the entire file to a variable that you can then display or manipulate at your discretion
