in thread regex on gigabyte string

Whoa back!

I am using a construct of if( substr($bigstring, $begtagidx, 5) eq "<c r=" ) Where $begtagidx is out to 4 billion and have not seen problem.

But the data verification process is not yet terminated so I will have to get back to you cloistered people on this.

thanks for the pearls of scripture !

    Okay. It seems that limitation has been lifted with 5.16 (I still use 5.10.1 as my primary Perl where it is the case):

    say $];; 5.016001 $s = 'fred'; $s x= 1024**3;; print substr( $s, -4 );; fred

    But the 2GB limit on regex still persists in 5.16:

    [19:51:25.70] C:\test>\perl64-16\bin\perl \perl64\bin\p1.pl [0] Perl> say $];; 5.016001 [0] Perl> $s = 'fred'; $s x= 1024**3;; [0] Perl> ++$n while $s =~ /fred/g; say $n;; Use of uninitialized value $n in say at (eval 9) line 1, <STDIN> line +3. [0] Perl> $s = 'fr'; $s x= 1024**3;; [0] Perl> ++$n while $s =~ /fr/g; say $n;; Use of uninitialized value $n in say at (eval 11) line 1, <STDIN> line + 5. [0] Perl> $s = 'fr'; $s x= 1020**3;; [0] Perl> ++$n while $s =~ /fr/g; say $n;; 1061208000 [0] Perl>
