I wrote a LISP program to parse .DIF (data interchange format) files into a
simple LISP data structure.
When I run my routine for .DIF files over 1 Meg. in size, it often takes over
6 minutes real-time to load. However, when I load the file with Fred it takes
less than 3 seconds real-time to load.
I can quickly scroll through the file in Fred which means that Fred is storing
the file in RAM somewhere.
Could I use Fred in my load program to first load the file into RAM and then
use Fred as my input buffer to improve my read performance?
