When working with binary files, Perl can easily read just the first 512 bytes of a 5gb iso file. JavaScript cannot do that. It would try to read the entire file first, and there's nothing you can do to go around that. lol
#!/usr/bin/node "use strict"; /* perl -wMstrict -le 'open my $fh, "<:raw", "5gig.iso" or die $!; seek($fh,0x8000,0) or die $!; read($fh,my $buf,512)==512 or die; print unpack("H*",$buf)' */ // const fs = require('fs'); '5gig.iso', 'r', function (err, fd) { if (err) throw err; var buf = Buffer.alloc(512);, buf, 0, buf.length, 0x8000, function (err, bytesRead, buffer) { if (err) throw err; if (bytesRead!=buf.length) throw "not enough bytes read!"; console.log(buffer.toString('hex')); }); } );

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.
