If you are going to examine every read in order then I suppose you could parse a giant text file. This sort of sequential analysis is hard to speed up unless you parallelize it. If you are parsing a text file you could break it into many parts and then run your PERL script on the many parts in parallel (if you have access to that kind of equipment).

I am not aware of an off the shelf tool. Sorry!

Personally I opt for pthreads and C/C++...
