    Text files and heap


    I'm making program that uses rather large textfile some 20 000 lines, a sort of a dictionary. There's one word in a row.

    Should I use it as a text file and then use input streamer to read it? I need to access only one line/word at a time.

    Does the size of this kind text file affect the amount of memory my program needs to run?

    Re: Text files and heap

    you probably should split it, and avoid storing it in memory.
    i would suggest you create one file per letter, at least. because reaching for the latest line of the file while take long time
