File Access Question

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me out with a question. I'm currently using a 632 LCD and I would like the first line of the LCD to be the first line of a text file and the second line to be the second line of that same text file. The text file will be constantly updated by another program (to be more specific, it will be updated by Automate 5). Is there any way to do this with the CrystalFontz software? I know Smartie can do this, but I really don't want to use any 3rd party software. Thank you very much!

This shouldn't be too hard of a .DLL to write. If the v2.0 version has a specific interface for calling .DLLs, I could write this one in C/C++ fairly quickly.
