reading the end of file
Is any command faster than
to reach and print on screen the last page of the file?
The question (i hope) is not outside amd64 as such large files as 10GB
can only result from computations at 64 bit. The scope is following
the progress of the computational procedure; the command "cat
filename" takes hours to print the end of the file. At least so when
all memory (24GB) is taken by the diagonalization of matrix, while the
hamiltonian is stored out of memory (10GB).
