Graceful handling of first line
egbert.list at hccnet.nl

A file is too large to fit into memory.
The first line must receive a special treatment, because
it contains information about how to handle the rest of the file.
Of course it is not difficult to test if you are reading the first line
or another one, but it hurts my feelings to do a test which by definition
succeeds at the first record, and never afterwards.
Any suggestions ?
