At least it is another tool to consider. Almost always I do
not slurp in the file but rather read it a line at a time to
determine what to do with that line (e.g., transform it; extract
information from it; ignore it). mmap would be a good replacement
for slurp if such a need arises.
Although I suppose I should try it as a replacement for the normal
open. Doesn't seem like it would make any difference though.
