I replied to Phil privately, but since others have joined the conversation,
I'll respond publicly. I use the code at
pbewig.googlepages.com/ProcessingFieldedTextFiles.pdf to process
comma-delimited files and other text-formatted databases. I've never timed
it, or compared it to other code, but it's always been fast enough for what
I wanted to do. Let me know if you find it useful.
