Reads a line of a text from a text file.

Syntax
read {file} storageVar {line}

{file}: The file to read text from.

storageVar: The variable to store the line in.

Notes
This command attempts to read a line of text from a file. If the file does not exist, an error is raised. If the line is past the end of the file, 'EOF' is returned.

Example

if ($BustFile <> "")
  fileExists $exists $BustFile
  
  if ($exists)
    setArray $BustList SECTORS
    setVar $i 1
    read $BustFile $bust $i
    while ($bust <> EOF)
      setVar $BustList[$bust] 1
      add $i 1
      read $BustFile $bust $i
    end
  end
end
