in reply to Out of Memory - Line of TXT too large

Scan a very big file, working on some portions? This a good opportunity for mmap. For example:
use File::Map ':all'; my $file = shift; my $SEP = "\n"; # line/chunk separator my ($s, $e); open(my $fh, '<', $file) || die "$!"; map_handle(my $mmap, $fh, '<'); sub process {} for ($e = 0;; $e += length($SEP)) { ($s, $e) = ($e, index($mmap, $SEP, $e)); print "fragment [$s, $e)\n"; process($e < 0 ? substr($mmap, $s) : substr($mmap, $s, $e-$s)); last if $e < 0; }
