Regex on a huge text

I'm looking on how to apply a regex on a pretty huge input text (a file
that's a couple of gigabytes). I found finditer which would return results
iteratively which is good but it looks like I still need to send a string
which would be bigger than my RAM. Is there a way to apply a regex directly
on a file?

Any help would be appreciated.
