In some fairly crude testing on a test file of 500,000 randomly generated lines (18MB) to fit the pattern of data you described, this seems to run about 400% quicker. 40 seconds rather 160.

no warnings; $^W=0; open my $in, $ARGV[0] or die "Couldn't open $ARGV[0]:$!"; my ($buffer, %h) = ''; keys %h = 1024*500; while (sysread($in, $buffer, 16384, length $buffer)) { $h{$1}++ while $buffer =~ m[^(?:.+?\|){9}([^|]+)\|]mg; $buffer = substr($buffer, rindex($buffer, "\n")); } print scalar keys %h;

You may need to adjust the regex, and you might squeeze some more out by playing with the read size and/or the hash preallocation. In my tests, I had variable results from both, but the differences were of within the bounds of run-to-run error. Especially the latter which I am not really sure how the number of buckets relates to keys.

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
1) When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2) The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible
3) Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
