Re: Algorithm To Select Lines Based On Attributes
in thread Algorithm To Select Lines Based On Attributes
Thanks for the suggestions. I have one question about bullet #2:
I need to read to the end of the file before I enter this subroutine because I need to know how some information at the bottom of the file before I decide which rule set to use. I figured it would be better to cache that DEFECTLIST into memory rather than re-reading the file again. Is that best? Or, is there someway I could store the position in the file of the beginning and the end of the defect list, and always ensure that all characters between it are the DEFECTLIST? I don't have experience with stuff like that...
I will definately think about using Memoize and see if I can implement it.
