Since there is always more than one way to do it. Here would be my guess to traverse the file faster:

my $jmp_distance = 100; my $treshhold = $FOO my $line = <FILE>; (my $tstamp, my $rest) = split(/\s+/,$line,2); #skipping through file by jumping over $jmp_distance lines do { $. += $jmp_distance; $line = <FILE>; ($tstamp, $rest) = split(/\s+/,$line,2); } while ($tstamp<=$treshhold) #since we overshot with the last jump $. -= $jmp_distance; while (<FILE>) { ($tstamp, $rest) = split(/\s+/,$_,2); print if $tstamp > $treshhold; }
Of course you can modify this further. For example putting the whole do whileloop in a sub and recursively call it with shorter jmp_distances. that way you could start with a distance of 10000 and then go to shorter distances like 1000, 100, 10 and 1 (1 = condition to break the recursion) if you call the sub with jmp_distance/10.
