[OS X TeX] Loop in tabular environment

I have a problem with the following loop, which reads lines from a file:

     \ifeof1 \encorefalse \fi
     \read1 to \ligne
     % TREATMENT OF \ligne
     % OUTPUT

This loop works correctly. However, if I put it into a "tabular" 
environment and use "&" or "\cr", the loop will end. Apparently, the 
loop cannot exceed one "cell" of the table. Is this correct? Is there a 
simple solution, or should I rather write this using another language 
than TeX?

Thank you for any help.
