in reply to Optimise file line by line parsing, substitute SPLIT

If memory is not lacking, you can slurp the entire file and then process the lines, as in:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $file = "/Path/to/file/file_X.txt"; open(my $fh, '<', $file) or die("Can not open file $file to read!\n"); my @lines = <$fh>; close($fh); for (@lines) { chomp; ## process the rest here, including calls to split } print "\n# of lines: " . scalar(@lines) . "\n";
This has a good chance to speed things up, presumably because perl will make fewer calls to read(2).
