Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

Your post was helpful indeed, but there is a thing to consider (and the reason for me to propose crashing the interpreter ;-)

If you read data line by line, that's usually because you need it line by line.

Depending on your application it might be possible to handle incomplete lines without much change to your program, or it might not.

If there is a good reason for line based reading, and the line doesn't fit into RAM, you're lost anyway. (Not always, but still rather often).

On the other hand if the line based reading is just a method of chunking the data, then the approach that uses a read limit is probably the way to go.

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.
