I'm using v.188.8.131.52 -- I am importing (wrong word?) binary data from a file: << Utilities`BinaryFiles` y = ReadListBinary["filename", SignedInt16, ByteOrder->LeastSignificantByteFirst]; The file is only 34k bytes long but it takes 16 seconds to do it. This isn't a slow machine so clearly I'm doing something wrong again. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to make this thing sizzle as I feel sure it can. Right now I'm dead if I have to do a big file. Thanks remove the dash if emailing
