Try to read a huge text file via C# or Java.
Posted on 2013-01-25
This is a hypotetical question. Say that, I am trying to read extremely huge text file via C# or Java. Now, first how can i read a huge file in those languages?
Second, how can i be sure that for each line I read, there won't be a collapse in the reading process?
I need to extract the content per line and work on the extracted atoms which are blank delimited. I am planning to have a thread for this very process for each line but should I join the thread to the main program or what can be the strategy? There is no write operation on the file, and assume that the file is prepopulated.
Can you give me some strategies above this scenario in Java and C#?
P.S. The culprit is the huge file size, I have to be sure that it won't collapse once I open the file for read purpose and read. I can also go for C or PHP for this need.
