But this is calling the readlines function, which continually reads from the file until more bytes have been read than the specified argument.

>From bz2.readlines:
"size can be specified to control the number of lines read: no further lines will be read once the total size of the lines read so far equals or exceeds size."

Do other file-like objects interpret this parameter differently?
