In fact I'd like to store textual information in globals.
Some of the files I want to load up GT.M globals are more
than 100 kb.
A slight problem I'm facing now: I read that a record size
cannot be bigger than the DB block size - but the latter
can have a max. length of 64 kb only...
I have 2 questions:
1/ How could I deal with this issue (store large texts
that for some will span several blocks, and thus
will have to be stored in "sub-globals" of some kinds) ?
I'm considering to do the following:
- compute the length of my text
- if it's bigger than 64K
take the first 64K bytes
store them in a first global
take the remaining bytes
store them in another global related to the previous
- if not simply store it right away
2/ Is there a way to index my texts/my globals once they
are populated with these texts ?
How could I retrieve a global whose text contains
somwhere the strings "measles" for example ? (I
want to *quickly* retrieve it of course !)
Any body ever had to address that kind of stuff using
GT.M perhaps ?
Thanks a lot...
