File information object
Added a FileInfo object. This object can be used to determine information about a file like whether it's present, readable, etc. Strings have a new property 'asFileName' that answer a FileName object. FileName objects have a new property called 'FileInfo' which answers a FileInfo (unless the named file doesn't exist, in which case you get <null>). See the documentation to find out about FileInfo's properties.

Message chains in subexpressions
Fixed a bug that made message chains (multiple properties separated by '.') illegal in subexpressions (i.e., expressions inside &()). For example: &((name = ps)); didn't work, but now does.

Line terminators
Added support for reading files with Macintosh and Unix line-terminators.
