Is there a way to effectively read lines from an Unicode file? @LINE works OK but has limitation - 8191 lines. @FILEREAD returns garbage when used with Unicode files.

@LINE is not limited to 8191 lines; it's limited to a maximum of 8,191
characters *per* line.

You can also read lines from files (Unicode or ASCII) with DO or FOR.
