processing large filesby Anonymous Monk
|on Jul 04, 2001 at 00:48 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a script that does some file processing. reading a file that is composed of records and compiling some statistics on the data in the records. It won't work with files over 2 gig. How can I make it work for larger files? I have read that perl version 5.6 works with larger files if you use -Duselargefiles . How do I do this? I tried putting this on the shebang line:
and got the following output:
Recompile perl with -DDEBUGGING to use -D switch
any help on this would be appreciated.
