    because i said file is in tera bytes, so if my file reading position is nth (ex : 99999999) then it will be difficult to parse all lines and consuming time also.

    do we have function in perl like seek?

      Yes. See perlfunc. Also, Google is helpful. If the file is on a remote server, then seek will only work if you can mount the remote filesystem locally.

      Perl has seek as a builtin. It's not gonna help solve the question you asked us, though.

        It might if he's forgotten to mention that his records are fixed length.
