I am developing a C# console application using Visual Studio 2005. How would you write a loop routine to read the records in a text file 1 at a time and assign the value of positions
87 to 95 to a string variable titled strAccount while there are records in the text file? The text file resides at C:\files\test.txt.

While (! EOF)
{    
     strAccount = ???
     peformRoutineXXX
}

Assuming a "record" is simply one line in the text file...something like:
            string line = "";
            string strAccount = "";
            string FileName = @"C:\files\test.txt";
            StringReader SR = new StringReader(FileName);
            while (SR.Peek() != -1)
            {
                line = SR.ReadLine();
                if (line.Length >= 95)
                {
                    strAccount = line.Substring(86, 9); // zero based index
                    peformRoutineXXX(strAccount);
                }
            }
            SR.Close();
