I'm curious about the different efficiencies of Export vs. Put; Import vs.

Eg. Saving a list called "c" with approx. 16,000 elements, each element
being a three element list of reals.

Export["ac.dat",c] takes forever and consumes heaps of kernel memory

c>>ac.dat all done in an instant (relatively speaking) and without the
transient burst of kernel memory usage.

Ditto Import and Get. Can anyone explain this?
