Stolen, cannibalized and slightly adopted from this older thread: Threads From Hell #2: How To Search A Very Huge File [SOLVED]:

#!/usr/bin/env perl # # $Id:,v 1.2 2017/11/04 11:02:41 karl Exp karl $ use strict; use warnings; use MCE::Loop; use Time::HiRes qw( time ); use feature qw(say); my $file = q(data.txt); MCE::Loop::init( { max_workers => 4, use_slurpio => 1 } ); my $start = time; my @result = mce_loop_f { my $slurp_ref = $_[1]; my @column; open my $fh, '<', $slurp_ref; binmode $fh, ':raw'; while (<$fh>) { push @column, substr( $_, 10, 1 ) } close $fh; MCE->gather(@column); # sleep 2; } $file; say join( '', @result ); printf "Took %.3f seconds\n", time - $start; __END__

Thanks to marioroy.

See also MCE.

Update: To avoid the call to binmode please see Encoding horridness revisited: What's going on here? [SOLVED].

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