Yup, files. In other words, rubber bands and chewing gum, but it works nicely. Here's a short screen video of an "XPyL" routine that compiles a sorted list of all unique words in a text file and reports average word length. Subject file is the Gutenberg e-file of Moby-Dick, a 1.2MB text file. It's fast.
BTW, this is Python 3.2.5 running on W2K in VirtualBox.
