Need your thoughts on the best way to store/save/send a VERY large string
I'm just wondering what your thoughts are guys on a recommended way for me to play with a String of numbers that is incredibly large?
I'm talking a String of numbers 100,000,000 digits+ long with no spaces. Obviously, I realise I can break it up into several seperate files and just write a method to join them but I am wondering if anybody can recommend any other file formats or anything along those lines, rather than using txt files that I could use?
I only need to be able to have access to the Strings, modify them where necessary and then save them again in the same format.
Also because of the size, I was wondering, should I be converting to Hexidecimal to save space?
Can anybody point me in a direction?
Thanks in advance ;)
