hi neshkov.
it's a simple exaple:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  p:PChar;
  str:string;
  f:TextFile;
begin
  if OpenDialog1.Execute then begin
    AssignFile(F,OpenDialog1.FileName);
    Reset(f);
    while not eof(f) do begin
      readln(f,str);
      GetMem(p,Length(str)+1);
      strPCopy(p,str);
      OemToChar(p,p);
      RichEdit1.Lines.Add(string(p));
      FreeMem(p,Length(str)+1);
    end;  
    CloseFile(f);
  end;
end;
