I need a faster solution for searching
Posted on 2002-05-08
I'm currently doing a search using the method below and the spelling.txt file contains 20,000 lines. And my string $FullName is like "Mike_Abbas". When I run the search it's taking a very long time for each names and I have approximately 20,000 names. Any other better ways??
@lines = <F>;
$num_match = grep /^$FullName$/i, @lines;
