The ReadRawFile command

The ReadRawFile command is used as follows:

> contents := ReadRawFile('Sample/rawdata');
contents := %!
%%Creator:Darwin: Sequence Searching Facility
% ..(7845).. 
arwin plot
Now the contents of 'Sample/rawdata' is placed in an object of type string. The length of contents is equal to the number of characters contained in 'Sample/rawdata'.
