I suspect you may be able to solve your issue by processing the individual records rather than slurping the entire input file at once, but without code and sample input we can't really provide you with more than generalisations.

    I definitely agree with this. Most of the files I am working with would give me the "out of memory" message if I tried to slurp then entirely into memory. They are just way too large. Processing one line at a time is quite often the solution. But I can't say more without seeing the program and a data sample.
