I need to delete a row from a file with many rows in it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to THE MOST EFFICIENT/FASTEST algorithm KNOWN TO MANKIND on how to do this? I have some ideas, such as simply string copying from one file to the other and omitting the row that I dont want...but I dont know if that's THE FASTEST in the entire UNIVERSE. You know, they should make a search engine on this experts-exchange forum, I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'm way too lazy to go through 2000 paq to perhaps find the one I need. Thanks to all.
