Hi all,
1. How do I make Mathemtica wait from reading a file until the file 
reaches a certain size?

2. How do I make Mathematica just go in and read a file, look for an 
occurance of some text, then store that as my Mathematica variable, 
rather than having to store the file as a Mathematica list, look for a 
match then grab the value.

W.R.T question 2, I guess I am a little confused about connections from 
Mathematica to text files in general and the proper use of InputStreams 
, ReadList, etc.

Thanks
Yas
