    Cool Read a file FAST

    I would like to know what is the absolute fastest way to read in an ASCI text file using C language. Should I use one of the standard C function below and loop it until EOF, or is there a faster method.

    1) fgetc
    2) fgetl
    3) Some other fucntion?

    In addition are there any programmatic adjustments that I could make to improve I/O file read performance.

    Cross posting isn't cool... you posted an identical thread in C/C++/Obj-C.
