internetreadfil e newline read

Is there a way to make the internetreadfil e function read records that
are terminated by newlines instead of reading into a buffer. It would
make it much easier for me to process.

I suppose I could read the whole file and split into an arry, but how
do I split on a CRLF ?

A little more info might be helpful as to why.

I'm having read UNIX files from a C# program and check if a certain
pattern appears in the files. Once I find a record with the pattern, I
can quit looking at that file because I know I need to FTP it down for
the user. Some of these files are in the tens/hundreds of megs, so I
dont want to ftp it down unless I know I need to.

I need to present them with a list of the possible candidate files, so
I'm using findfirstfile/findnextfile to get the list of possible files,
then I need to look for this pattern in the file.

Is there any way, upon scanning in a file line by line to avoid missing the last line if there is not a newline character (aka you have to hit return on the last line of input in your file). I was sure that there was a way around it but it escapes me if there is one. Thanks Charles Erwin

I am looking for a way to strip the blank line and the empty newline at the end of the text file.

How do I get rid of it? import re f = open("oldfile.txt") w = open("newfile.txt", "wt") for line in f.readlines():
