Hi.

Sorry, I dont have any more points. If you know a good answer to my question please notify my and i will by some points to give you!!!!! Thanx.

I have a TRichEdit (RichEdit1) that I load large files into. I want to examin if the format of these files are correct. I do that by running through the file line by line.
My problem is that...

var
  St1 : string;
begin
  St1 := RichEdit1.Lines[no];
...

...takes more and more time as no gets higher. I work with very large files and the time used on the formatchecking is just to long. I have tried to use the Text-property and some pointer-gym. istead (having a pointer pointing to the beginning of the next line and just create the string from the pointer) and that worked fine in the beginning, but the i got in some problems doing that (Very, very, very strange problems).
Now i want to know if any of you guys know how to work around my problem (Reading through all the lines of a large TRichEdit, without using alot of time)?
Anyone one know of a desant of TRichEdit that might have some functionality that I could use?

Thanx - Steff
