[SOLVED] Making a new folder, reading an entire file in one block read
I am working on a new database indexing structure (to index a heap file). I have a need to create folders in which to store various index files.
Secondly, I need to be able to read my files (files, NOT folders) in as few hard disk head movements as possible. I need to pull them into memory and then execute a linear search on them, but I do not want to read them line by line if this would cause n reads for a file containing n lines.
