could try making the massive file smaller by breaking it into multi-files before processing, is all lines in the file needed or only specific lines? maybe a script that loads X number of lines at a time... or maybe try setrlimit ?ah yeah, I've come across that on my raspberry pi try to load massive file to be parsed. Couldn't figure how to put it to Ulimit or something like that.
hey can u help me with something?
Well, much of this early driver hacking is since long forgotten, maybe there is not much in my brain to pick. Forgot to boast about my helping students during more than 15 years to get up and going with Linux. My sons use, with my aid, dual boot Linux/Windows systems and still, at the age of 72, I help neighbours (mainly retired people) switch to Linux in order to avoid paying for the OS and because they can keep their old computers many more years if they run Linux on them.
