Hi, I've been reading in text files using the following command: ReadList["file.txt", Word] However, now I only want to read in every 3rd number, starting with the valueI specify. For example, say I had these values: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 How would I read in every third number, starting with the second integer? So the result would look like this: 1, 4, 7
