I changed the buffering mode when I opened the file, and it definitely
helped. Now I get almost the whole file, everything except for the
last three or four lines. So I guess I do have some type of buffering
problem. I don't understand why this happens though. I've never had
this problem before, and I've worked quite a bit with files.

So now how do I get those last few lines? And if I should place a
strategic .flush() somewhere, where should it go?

Thanks again,
Marc
