handling/parsing LARGE text files in c#
Posted on 2006-03-26
What is the best way to handle/parse large text files in c# (i.e. 500+ MB). Here's what the process would look like; there are large text files comming in, and going out, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. These files (i.e. EDI files, format is X12) have to be parsed properly and passed on to next process. File sizes vary but they are large. So, I was thinking, which way should I go...
I thought using unsafe technique in c#, also thought about using asyncronious StremReader/StreamWriter, thought about using both of these, and I still cannot deside. Any advise is highly appreciated.
