[REBOL] Deleteing lines from a big file
From: vincenke::ohsu::edu at: 16-Jul-2001 15:23
I'm looking for a way to delete problematic lines from very large data files (too large
for buffered access).
big-file: open/direct/lines %VeryBigDataFile.DAT
skip big-file (row-to-delete - 1)
line-to-check: first big-file ; confirm that this is the correct line to delete
if (find line-to-check condition) <> none [remove line] <------------- Is there
some way to do this???
(I'm still creeping along at the beginning of the learning curve!)
