Is there a way, (without resorting to the toolbox) to increase the buffer
size used with "read-line"? Using read-line to count the number of lines
in the file seems to be a real disk basher...read-line is hitting the disk
about every 3rd read-line, which for a 4-5k line file is a real workout...
Is there a straightforward way to use binary file i/o using :element-type
'(unsigned-byte 8192) to read in, say 1k???
Finally, is there a depository of clos objects which is open to all? i.e.
spreadsheet, picture buttons, icon objects, etc? I have a few that I have
made but I'd like to avoid reinventing the wheel!!! I would also like to
see more examples of object design and lisp code...
