in reply to matching datetimestamps and concatenating data where timestamps match from multiple large datafiles
I have to agree with the database approach brought up earlier. I occasionally run into these issues where correlation between large files is required and have yet to be able to beat the combo of perl and DBI/DBD. SQLite has been a life-saver
- for ease of use
- quick implementation
- a short learning curve
- as well as performance savings
Best of luck in whatever approach you use...
- ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
- The Spice must flow...
- ..by my will, and by will alone.. I set my mind in motion
