help...

i have a log file to read and process via an http request.
the request displays an unformatted output of lines than extends beyond 3mb.
when i try to read in in java i get an out of memory error, and when i save it from the browser i only save up to about 7pm - the file runs 24 hours and cleans down at 23:59...

is there a way i can buffer the http request read to the input file to prevent the memory condition?

I cant show the error at the moment as it is too early in the day!!
