From Carla's 2011 KISS talk, I gathered 

Messages you can send to textFileStream
linesInFile
maxValue
maxValueForColumn:
minValue
minValueForColumn:
nextLine
nextNumber
nextParameters

Are there more messages for textFileStream since then?
I was unable to locate a list in the User Guide, Kyma X Revealed, or Forum. Just embedded examples and examples with Sound Parameter assistant. 

Side question: is there a reference guide for Kyma specific SmallTalk like the Capytalk Reference has for Capytalk? I do want to give a shout and say that Capytalk Reference is Amazing.

The messages for an instance of TextFileStream:

addHelpStringDescriptorsTo:
columns
lines
linesInFile
maxValue
maxValueForColumn:
minValue
minValueForColumn:
nextLine
nextLineAsByteString
nextLineAsTokenArray
nextLineIncludingComments
nextLineStream
nextNumber
nextParameters
quickColumnCount
scanner
setCachedValues

 

It's ultimately a subclass of Stream so it should also responds to these messages:

atEnd
close
contents
contentsBetween:and:
contentsSpecies
cr
crtab
crtab:
do:
emphasis
emphasis:
fileOutChanges
fileOutChangesFor:
flush
