        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 2))
        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 3))
        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 4))
        'MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, -73))    'Should throw exception.
    End Sub

    Private Function GetLine2(ByVal filename As String, ByVal lineNumber As Integer) As String
        Dim sr As System.IO.StreamReader
