( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I want to read a huge file content (4GB) and store it in a variable that to pass to a generic function.
ls -lh /path/2024.sql -rw-r--r-- 1 user group 609M Oct 17 20:49 2024.sql
I hv used the below code, but got "Out of memory" error.
open(FH,"/path/2024.sql"); $/=EOF; $var = <FH>; &callGenericfunction($var);
Even tried using Tie::File.
use Tie::File; $filename = "/path/2024.sql"; my $obj = tie @array, "Tie::File", $filename; $var = join " ",@array; &callfunction($var);
Tried with buffering.
open (FH, "</path/2024.sql") or die "bah"; binmode FH; $buffer = 1024 * 1024 * 2; my $data = ""; while (read (FH,$data, $buffer) ){ $data .= $data; } &callfunction($var);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
