You open an ascii file the same way you open a binary one, except you
use "r" instead of "rb", then use fgets to read in one line at time and
parse it, I would recommend a loop that reads in the line then
determines if that line has usefull info on it, if so, it would parse
out the data from the line then continue to the next line.  You close
the file in the exact same way as a binary file with fclose().
