[REBOL] Large file compare

From: valleyroad::gmx::de at: 8-Jun-2005 11:53

Hi, i want to do a large file compare with rebol. I already wrote a script to do this, which works fine and compares two testfiles, containing more than 800000 lines each, within 13 minutes. The only problem is, that the process consumes about 180 MB Memory and 95 % CPU. The CPU is ok, but i think the proble will be the Memory as the taget volume is to compare about 6.7 Mio lines per file. What i am doing is reading (a: read %testfile1.txt) the two files, doing an intersect and make a diff on the two files like this: a: read %testfile1.txt b: read %testfile2.txt inboth: intersect a b only_a: difference inboth a only_b: difference inboth b My question is, if there are better ways in rebol to achive the same with lesser memory consumption??
