Today we added a streaming file reader to the source code shop. If you would like to shorten your development time you can now buy the StreamingFileReader source code for just $2. At that link you will see the public interface as well as an example on how to use the StreamingFileReader.
Use it either as an example on how to use NSStreamDelegate, NSInputStream and the "scheduleInRunLoop" and "removeFromRunLoop" calls, or use it to subclass your own streaming file reader.
In either case, implementing a streaming file reader that processes the file chunks that come due while there are no user events pending will improve the smoothness of the user experience.
Note: If you are looking for some simple guidance on NSStream, check out this post:
