Since there is always more than one way to do it. Here would be my guess to traverse the file faster:
my $jmp_distance = 100; my $treshhold = $FOO my $line = <FILE>; (my $tstamp, my $rest) = split(/\s+/,$line,2); #skipping through file by jumping over $jmp_distance lines do { $. += $jmp_distance; $line = <FILE>; ($tstamp, $rest) = split(/\s+/,$line,2); } while ($tstamp<=$treshhold) #since we overshot with the last jump $. -= $jmp_distance; while (<FILE>) { ($tstamp, $rest) = split(/\s+/,$_,2); print if $tstamp > $treshhold; }
Of course you can modify this further. For example putting the whole do whileloop in a sub and recursively call it with shorter jmp_distances. that way you could start with a distance of 10000 and then go to shorter distances like 1000, 100, 10 and 1 (1 = condition to break the recursion) if you call the sub with jmp_distance/10.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
