Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Unix "look" Command "File too large" Error Message Post 302516074 by Corona688 on Thursday 21st of April 2011 03:07:49 PM

Ah, I think I see:
Code:
DESCRIPTION
     The look utility displays any lines in file which contain string as a
     prefix.  As look performs a binary search, the lines in file must be
     sorted (where sort(1) got the same options -d and/or -f that look is
     invoked with).

...so look really does need to know how long the file is.

grep should work since it doesn't, but won't have the performance advantage of being able to do a binary search.
