Need to terminate the looping after reading the file contents!!!!!

65 New Member
Hi Everyone,

i have the written this logic :
basically a file operation

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. open (CONFIGFILE, "$config_file") or die;
  3. while (<CONFIGFILE>) {    
  4.     chomp;
  6.     if ( ! ( $_ =~ /^#/ ) ) {
  7.        $CONFIG = $CONFIG . $_ . " ";
  8.     }
  9. }
  10. close (CONFIGFILE);
Note: Config file(text file) has some text lines<br>

now my problem is :
Config file has some 10 to 15 lines but the above code run for a while even after reading all the line from the file.

now i need some sort of logic where i can terminate the looping once it finishes the reading the line or it encounter the some specail character or keep some wait_time variable & loop till wait_time exceeds.

Can anyone help me on how to achieve above said logic ??

i need to alter this code to suit the above said requirement
can anyone help me on this ??

If you want to terminate the loop after a particular requirement is met, you may use the last statement.e.g
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. while(<FILE>) {
  2.  if(/$pat/) {
  3.   my $str= $_;
  4.   last;  ## comes out of while loop
  5.   }
  6. }

Hi, In my project I need to use VirtualAlloc (kernel32) to allocate memory to ensure that data is 4K aligned. I need to fill the data block with file contents. I notice that there are no 'Read' operations to memory pointed to be an IntPtr (I checked FileStream & BinaryReader). Can I do this from C#/.NET? I'm currently mapping C-functions to achieve this, and I'm not too fond of doing that. Can someone help me with this?

I'm writing a c++ program that has many (100+) threads read/write files simultaneously. It works well if not considering the efficiency. The file i/o seems to be the bottleneck. This is my code to read from and write to files: #include <fstream> #include <sstream> #include <string>
