I'd be surprised if the script needs the -F";" as it doesn't handle single fields but just the entire line, $0

I have no idea how this is possible. When i tried without, it did not work.


Anyhow its a mayor improvement over the old version.

I am not sure what you mean with a large file but i am running this for several weeks now with files around 150k ish. The complete script with 2x this one in it (1 to remove products that are in the filter and 1 to readd when it gets filtered (i use parts of names to filter)) and several mysql queries takes less then a min to complete that that is about max 30 sec for this 2 combined as 1 of the sql queries takes 30sec to run.


All in all i would not say that it is slow but super fast for my needs.
