in thread Eating RAM problem

Chromatic, I need to get each element into an array. If the file size is 2 million bytes, then the array should have 2 million elements. How can I do that without draining RAM? Using your sub I get:
@blah = by_string($file); $i = 0; foreach(@blah){ $i ++; } print $i; # Prints 1... not what I am looking for
Thanks

    Then use length $blah[0] instead. You can do anything with strings that you can do with an array of 0's and 1's. The syntax is just a little different.

    Why do you need to get each element into an array?
    Could you use Tie::VecArray; ?
