Ok, I've tried this, but I get a "TeX capacity exceeded" error.  See below.
 I've attached the file I used, which should produce 10000 pages of "Lorem
ipsum ...".  Any clues appreciated.


tex "\nonstopmode\input" "LoremIpsum.tex"
This is TeX, Version 3.1415926 (MiKTeX 2.8)

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=3000000].
\body ...olestie convallis, leo neque suscipit lib
                                                  ero, vitae consectetur

\next ->\body
              \let \next \iterate \else \let \next \relax \fi \next
l.149 \ifnum\pageno<10000 \repeat

No pages of output.
