Reading files

Is it possible to read the first line of a file and pull code from it?

For example, I want to pull

[lua]ZerK[/lua]

from [lua]Player: ZerK[/lua]

If it’s not possible to do that, how can I just pull the first line?

Do a string Explode

Then you’ll have a table where each index corresponds to the line. So output[ 1 ] is line 1

To get Zerk from Player: Zerk, you can do several different things. You can try pattern matching, you can do a string.sub where you start from the 8th character and go until string.len( output[ 1 ] ), you could string.gsub and remove "Player: ", etc…
