In general, ReadList is reasonably fast. It depends, of course, on how and
where your data are stored. Some information about that would be useful.
Incidentally, are you writing a semicolon (;) at the end of the ReadList
statement? Otherwise, most of the time goes into displaying the list, which
usually is not necessary.
