a very basic question. how to read two files at the same time. Example:
file a file b
1 read a line from a
2 read a line from b
3 read a line from a
4 read a line from b
since the files are too large and i have not enough memory to store my files i am forced to do something like this but i hav realized that i don't know how to do this. If i have two nested while loops like this:
#read a line
#read a line
last; # go back to the main loop, but how to continue from this p
+oint in the next iteration ?
how do i continue from where i stopped in the nested loop?
UPDATE: Thnx moritz ! that did it :)
