huge-split.pl - Split bigram files from huge-count.pl into pieces.


See perldoc huge-split.pl


huge-split.pl [OPTIONS] SOURCE


Required Arguments:


Input to huge-split.pl should be a file generated by huge-count.pl or count.pl with tokenlist option. The results files have the same name with the input source file and each split file has an extention sequence number.

--split N

This parameter should be set. huge-split will divide the output bigrmas tokenlist generated by count.pl or huge-count.pl. Each part created with --split N will contain N lines. Value of N should be chosen such that huge-sort.pl can be efficiently run on any part containing N lines from the file contains all bigrams file.

We suggest that N is equal to the number of KB of memory you have. If the computer has 8 GB RAM, which is 8,000,000 KB, N should be set to 8000000.
