The fact that the files are built at the same time! For every integer that is added in the middle of the mega-file (e.g. all of them), the location of every sub-file would have to be changed!

Do the sub-files' positions really need to change, or is it just the way you're envisioning it would have to be? If they don't need to, maybe a DB_RECNO DB_File is what you need. It would be auto-indexing and you could take sizes of individual records easily. You can splice in new pieces as well as push'ing and unshift'ing from the ends. There is some related file tying goodness in Conway's OOP book, ISBN 1884777791, (his genetic array in particular might be interesting for this).

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.
