reading the end of file



Hi:

Is any command faster than

cat filename

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).

thanks
francesco pietra
