I presume you mean 10¹⁰⁰? he answer is the same as “how do you eat an elephant”? One byte at a time. You would have to get that dataset into a Stream, which would probably be larger than the whole of the known universe, and read it sequentially. Don't panic if the program hasn't terminated after twenty minutes
