It seems the JavaScript function importTextData() in Acrobat 5.0 cannot read
beyond any line in the data file that consist solely of spaces. Also, you
cannot work around this by trying to skip past the "bad line". In other
words, if the third line of your data file contains just spaces, you can't
read line #5 just by doing importTextData(datapth, 5), because
importTextData() stalls at line 3.

I was wondering if anybody else has noticed this or has found a workaround.
