I'm glad you found that the indexes worked for you. I was curious if your file already had one word per line? If so, you could do a cat | sort | uniq to pre-process the file and rid yourself of any duplicates to eliminate the need for the check altogether. I think that getting the data into a ready-to-load format before involving the database would be quicker overall. Not to disparage PHP, but I would use Perl for such an endeavor. PHP seems to have a lot of memory overhead associated with text parsing. -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
