RE: SVN Book Method for Splitting Repos doesn't work

Well, I just loaded a 115M test file into my Emacs. But yes, in general,
that's not a particularly good solution. My choice would be to use Perl,
disable all the complex character set interpretation and use "sysread" and
"syswrite" to access the file without interference from the C library. Then
do some minimal level of parsing, so parts of versioned files that look like
control information get skipped over.

Using GNU sed solves the problem. Loading it in either Emacs or vim
wasn't really an option as the dump file is 115MB and the database
is expected to grow and I really want to process these huge dump files
with stream oriented tools, not an editor :-)
