first i made an abstraction for this problem:
i made a patch that converts integers to the refering number of bangs. so it
was possible to have random access to the lines in [textfile]

then i disccovered [msgfile] from zexy:
it's the same like [textfile], but with more features. you can simply send
it  a [goto 5( -msg to let it jump to line 5.

Do you mean: is it possible to adress files within a folder of which your
patch doesn't know the names?
hm, i didn't find any solution for this problem yet. i'm wondering
