I want to know what is the best way to read text files that are 500 megs in size. each file contains more or less 500,000 rows. I need to read this file line by line to extract data from it.
do I load the file to a string list?
do i read the file using end of file and end of line while loops?
is there a better way to ready quickly and efficiently with out using so much memroy?
thank you very much.
