[text define -k kopie]
against my expectations, i do get output on the first outlet when the 
line-number is out-of-range.
[print] says it's a bang.

is there a specific reason for this behaviour?
'normally' there would be a bang on the righthand outlet like in [text 
sequence] and e.g.[textfile] object.

with the present behaviour it seems necessary to have an extra object to 
take care of this first outlet bang.
