Dear Peter,
That is a nice one. I am thinking if I can write "for lines in f" sort of code that is easy but then how to find out the slices then, btw do you know in any case may I convert the index position of file to the list position provided I am writing the list for the same file we are reading. 

Best Regards,
Subhabrata.
