Tie::File will work great if you have a record separator, and the code
should be no more complex than searching an array of strings.

The amount of memory you want to use is just a parameter to Tie::File.

Gaal- can you elaborate on the data requirements you think will effect
him? Do you mean:

key distribution uniform - important for the binary search
record sizes roughly same size - to help Tie::File find separators
