    any useful tips to increase speed when parsing files

    any tips for increasing speed when parsing files? so far i read in the entire file at once, and then create a pointer which points to it to extract the data, other than that I don't have any ideas for increasing speed and i was wondering if anyone else did have any useful tips that increase speed.

    Your o/s may allow you to only read in certain pages of your file to memory (assuming it's the size of the file that is slowing you down).

    well this is the thing i'm not really going slow (yet) but I am starting to get into parsing some considerably large files, and I want to make sure I'm doing everything as optimal as possible, hence the reason I leave the file open for as long EDIT: little as possible, instead I read everything into a temporary buffer and then close it and then extract the things i need from there
