well, it's a real kludge, but since most NT machines need to be vastly overspecified anyway..
so long as you have the disk space, you could simply have the script split the file.
open the file, write up-to-one-gig to a new file.
make a copy of the file, then open the copy and discard the first-gig
then do your operation on the two temp files serially..
this would mean that you'd have to have 1.5 times the size of the file available for temporary use, plus whatever else the script generates.
i know, it's terrible... but likely easy and as long as you've got the disk space....
