hmm, I think I know what your trying to do, but the way I did it was to use an array.
for example :
DIM infofile( info here about the object, position, so on )

then u can:
save array "drive:\filename",infofile(0)

then when you need it, load the array, and read the info from it to create the objects.

I hope that has helped

well i already thought of that but what i want is a file with a big list of the object infos, like a .x file with the list of all the faces+positions
all i wanna know is how to read the first line then second line of the .txt file, i know it is possible

This is a simple and old sequencial file-access snippet :



Now concerning a CSV (Comma Separated Vars ) format parser, try to look at the mistr$() & instr$() functions, posted in this thread :
http://www.darkbasicpro.com/apollo/view.php?t=1854&b=6

Basically, what you do is get the first comma in line. You then extract tha datas between start_of_line & comma_pos. Do this for each comma, and there you have a CSV parser ! ^^
