Default Regarding " reading text files"

 Hi friends

 I have a text file "temp.txt" and I would like to use asp to read the first 3 lines and display using response.write.
the following prg reads the whole file

Set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject ")
Set f=fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("testread.txt"), 1)

do while f.AtEndOfStream = false

Set f=Nothing
Set fs=Nothing

But I need to read the first 3 line only ,
please help

Try a simple loop like this:
Dim n
For n = 1 To 3
  If Not f.AtEndOfStream Then
  End If
