It seems what you are trying to do is terribly inefficient, and 
I would not do it this way, but -logout- will chop up lines into 
separate variables provided it is first placed into an external file.
 
I was not aware of -split- at the time but it does a similar thing.
 
It looks like the current version is not unwrapping texts correctly, 
so you should use a really small font in the results window (right-click, 
and choose the font size of 1).
