If you are trying to optimize the process of reading the file I would
say it's not worthwhile -- the tiny gains you would see would be more
than offset by the extra processing, I would think.

If, on the other hand what you are looking for is to get the text of
the page up to a particular string, then simply use a function like
strpos()/substr() or explode() or preg_replace() or the like...

$foo = ReadPage(...);
if (($x = strpos($foo['text'], '>>div1end<<[[#blogend]]')) === FALSE)
   $MyText = $foo['text'];
   $MyText = substr($foo['text'], 0, $x);

or something like that.
