Does anyone have something better than ReadList. I have a 300x200 matrix to read in (from disk), and mathematica takes way to long to do it with ReadList. I've thought about writing a MathLink program to do it, but alas I know Fortran not C. I expect it would be faster, but I could be wrong. Also, am I the only one who can't get Todd Gayley's FastBinaryFiles to install on Windows NT? Install["Binary.exe"] just hangs up the kernel. -- Dag Spicer - Stanford University E-m: spicer at leland.stanford.edu P.O. Box 7027 Stanford, CA 94309 U.S.A.
