[REBOL] Re: Deleteing lines from a big file

From: max:ordigraphe at: 17-Jul-2001 11:57

HI, theoretically, unless your hard-disk can access UNIVERSE:/VOID and put a few of its sectors in a black hole I dont think so... ;-) one way to do this is to go to the end of the line you which to remove, and byte-by-byte copy the data to the start of the region you which to remove (remember to use at least 1k-20k buffers though, or it will be REALLY slow). But I can forecast the use of the /lines refinement as a hindrance to doing this. just my two cents -Max
