Six of one, half dozen of the other. :-) That's essentially what I'm
doing with a ram disk: preloading textfile objects into memory. The
nice thing about it, though, is that your Pd object doesn't have to care
- it all looks like a filesytem, whether its from ram disk or hard disk,
so you can use both/either according to your needs.
