13:02 gtodd chm: with File::Map a script that solves http://stackoverflow.com/a/36208336/2019415 is marginally faster for smaller huge files :-) (e.g. 1Gb). It also has interesting memory use characteristics ... on a one gig file it grabs enough RAM for the whole files and uses it all for the simple string parsing operation.  On a larger file (50 Gb i.e. larger than available RAM) it appears to act like a background fsck on a huge disk ... it chugs along but uses less memory.
13:03 gtodd chm:  anyway I quite like the way it simplifies things - I need to make some multi-terabyte files and test more. Thanks!
13:06 gtodd chm: ahh I see now the default offset is "0" and the default "length" for the read is set by "-s$filename" so it can adjust how much it reads based on file size memory etc.

16:13 sivoais Nice! Perl has the tools. You just need to know where to look! :-D
19:06 jberger sivoais: did you have some tooling for using R via perl/pdl?
19:17 sivoais Yep, Statistics::NiceR!
19:18 sivoais <http://p3rl.org/Statistics::NiceR>
19:18 sivoais I was just discussing with a friend how that could even be used to embed R graphics in a Gtk+ application
19:18 sivoais since there is a way to plot to a Cairo device in R
