Do you know of any keywords in these small text files?

If it is only a few files, then use grep, vi or your other favorite text
processing tools directly on the device.

For example, this works for me:
   grep -a -B5000 -A5000 "down by creek" /dev/wd0f > J
(Then I edit J down to get the actual file.)

Please tell us any error messages that are reported, so we can try to get
lazarus (is that the name of the tool?) working.
