Hello All.
There is something that I did that was weird here. I say this because
when I open the new file that it creates its 1/3 the size of the
original. It seems to just completely cut off. I took off the .split and
it still did this, so I know it has nothing to do with split. What do
you think is going on?

oldFile.txt
contains XML formatted data.

newFile.txt
is supposed to break each line up what starts with < giving a new line
per element for later use.
