Workshop Alex - Read/Write StringList to File

Workshop Alex,
I found your code on the website and it will be very useful to me. Can you help me with reading the stringlist from teh file that this code creates?

Thanks



var
  I:Integer;
  Output:TextFile;
  {List:TStringList;}
begin
  AssignFile( Output, 'Filename.txt' ) );
  Rewrite( Output );
  if ( List.Count > 0 ) then begin
    for I := 0 to Pred( Pred( List.Count ) ) do begin
      WriteLn( Output, List[ I ] );
    end;
    Write( Output, List[ Pred( List.Count ) ] );
  end;
  CloseFile( Output );
end;

You do know that a stringlist has its own save and load from file properties yes?
This would be much quicker to use if going directly from a stringlist.
