If a file is opened in a mode other than Random and OOo BASIC considers the file
a text file then Loc returns the line number that will be read next. I can not
decide if this is a bug or incomplete documentation. Sometimes the return values
from Loc are just wrong. For example, open a file for output and write some text
and Loc returns zero.
