Your examples show you transferring the data line-by-line.  Is that the end goal?  Or just fallout from what you happened to get working?

The reason I ask is that most of the time when I mess around with files I transfer the entire file to and from memory, which is something that the Foundation APIs excel at.  OTOH, there are times when line-by-line is necessary.
