in reply to network socket send loop is very cpu intensive
Two things I've noticed.
If you post the filename and data you are looking for, (to split) we'll have a better idea of what you are doing with the splits etc..
Update1: Something else... you assign $message the value of $data. Then you clean up the whitespace from $data but then send $message to sendtolive()..?
Update2: You open the /tmp/store dir and try to read a file int the /tmp/sms dir..?-----
Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
