Re^5: Optimise file line by line parsing, substitute SPLIT
in thread Optimise file line by line parsing, substitute SPLIT
I thought your point whas that OP is actually do nothing with data (read=nothing, read+split=nothing too), and he's going to read every word on every page soon,
then split time will be insignificant.
But it seems that you mean that OP benchmarks incorrect, because he benchmarks nothing vs split.
Otherwise I agree that split is can't be really optimized, just like I wrote above
