    reading long text files

      Hi guys,

      I have a bit of a question relating to file streams in AIR.

      I have a dictionary in a text file, which I need to load and parse into words.

      I am hitting a bit of a snag, as the following code snips the characters before the end of the file.

      var content:String=stream.readUTF();
      var wordArray:ArrayCollection=new ArrayCollection(String(content).split('\r\n'));
      for each(var word:String in wordArray)
      {
      WordDelegate.loadWord(word);
      }

      The last time I did something similar was in C++, where you basically read the file character by character. I don't quite know how to do this in flex. Any englightenment on the issue would be greatly appreciated.
