in thread speeding up a file-based text search
I tried this, but unfortunately I only got about a 10% performance gain. I do need to know the line that matched, so I used the chunked stuff to qualify chunks and then check them line by line if they match. This lazy way of doing things was quick to try out, but I would probably get better performance if I actually take the time to write code that can extract the line from a chunk based on the position of a match. I'll try that next.
