MENDIX Flat File Reader

Is there something like a flat file reader widget in Mendix? I would like something where you specify the length of each attribute in the file or an attribute seperator (like ; or | or $ etc), the widget should read each line in the file that can have any name in a specified directory, and build an entity from the mapped values in the file (something like the EXCEL Importer but for flat files.) Is there currently anything like this in Mendix? I am currently using Webservices to do the file mapping for me, but doesn't matter what I try, the action stays time consuming as it is storing objects in memory. Thank you.

There's no such module that I'm aware of, but to do it for a specific case isn't terribly hard and this has been done several times. Also see this question
