The textfile, coll, pool, and iem_matrix objects are all good places to 
start looking.... I personally use [coll] for storing/retrieving file 
names by line number. Plus some kind of counter structure, with a [mod] 
equivalent to the number of symbols in your list, would allow looping of 
the line numbers.

[playlist] would be an option as well, if all your files are in the same
