    Does anyone in the SLUG community have or know of Symbolics 
    software that can be used for doing random file i/o? 

We call it "direct access" rather than "random access".
Try Show Candidates direct in Document Examiner and skip
over the "directory" stuff to get to the "direct access" stuff.

If you want increased speed at the cost of having to use a local
disk rather than having the option of using a file server,
you might consider reading the documentation section
"Block Disk Streams".

I guess you didn't find this documentation because you were
looking under "random."
