I think your way (of looping through the file) is actually
better for a large range of file sizes.
I usually "cat" a bunch of HTML files together before
converting them with the script. Using the slurp method, a
cobbled-together file of 1 mb or more pretty much kills the
computer :) It just sits there, not processing but taking
up a lot of memory. After 10 minutes I have to kill the
OTOH if you loop over the file, that would allow it to
better allocate memory, I guess?
Do you Yahoo!?
