Mac and the desired encoding on the PC side, and it's really just a matter
of character code conversion.)

Hello- I am trying to write a snippet which will open a text file with an integer on each line. I would like to read the last integer in the file.

When I get into larger numbers though (e.g. 502) it only reads in the 2. Is there
