I've got a folder with a year's copies of a sequential file
I have need to extract two data elements from each line
I figure I can call DOS COPY routines to copy to a single file and then iterate thru the file to UNPACK into a .csv file
I had thought that it might also be possible to read the files into memory and just iterate thru the "table" to get the two numbers
Any idea which might be better/faster? I've never used File reading commands so I was thinking of doing something "new and exciting"
