Hopefully Easy VB File Processing Question
Posted on 2003-10-29
I'm writing a VB app that will:
1. Open a File
2. Read an input line
3. Process the input line
4. Write the processed input line to an output file.
Sounds easy enough. But processing the input line will require some straightforward text manipulation. Sounds easy enough.
My problem is: I'll be working with some medium size text files ranging in size from 30MB to 450MB. I expect that with the larger input files, this app will take some time to complete. (Depending on computer speed/RAM).
My other problem is: The target machine that this will be running on is a
1.4G w/ 256 MB.
Is there any suggestions or tricks that I can use to process the larger files (which I may add will be done on a daily basis) besides the SplitFile function?
