I have a txt file with some data that i need to import to de database.
I'm using ruby to import those data but i have a major problem, when i
a large amount of data i run out of memory."#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/files/Neighborsville.TXT").each() do
      @stringArray = line.split("|")
      @i += 1
      puts @i
      @pid = @stringArray[0]
      @chain_id = @stringArray[1]
      @business = Business.find_by_pid_and_chain_id(@pid,@chain_id);
      #Check PID + CHAIN_ID = @stringArray[0]
      @business.chain_id = @stringArray[1]
      @business.cityname = @stringArray[17]
      @business.state = @stringArray[18] =
Business.find_by_pid_and_chain_id(@pid,@chain_id); =
      @business.business_category = get_category_id(@stringArray[40])
      @business.address = @stringArray[8] +" "+   @stringArray[9] +"
"+ @stringArray[10]+" "+ @stringArray[11] +" "+@stringArray[12]+"
"+@stringArray[13]+" "+@stringArray[14]
      if @chain_id == nil
        @chain_id = ""
