Is there any problem with manipulating very long strings?
When I say long, I'm meaning like over 100,000 characters long.
I'm using examplelongString = data.readline() to get it from an html file. I then use examplelongString .find('text to find') to search for stuff.
I've been trying to do it, it works fine for a string I have of 60,000 characters in length (doesn't take more than a second to do BTW), but when I try it on a 100,000 character string, it doesn't work, and seems to be getting into memory space it shouldn't have access to. (It doesn't give any errors or anything though), from the debugging I've done so far.
Does this sound right? Is there a better way of dealing with long strings?
