paste <(seq 20000000) <(seq 2 20000001)  > largefile.txt

Then run the attached read.py. It takes about 40 seconds on my system and simply 
makes one large dict.

However the attached C code takes less than 10 seconds (code taken from public 
forums on the web.)

Is there potential to be competitive with the C code?
