Subject:      Re: Where is the working file?

On some old version of SPSS (pre-X) you used to be able to point the working data file to a RAM disk. Now is that possible with Windows95? --

Hekon Finne <> wrote in article <>... SPSS on DOS/Windows, versions through 6.x, keep the working data file on disk rather than in memory. With large data files, this makes everything go very slowly. Modern PCs regularly have much more RAM. This would allow for keeping the working file in memory. Where does SPSS 7.5 keep its working file - on slow disk or in fast RAM?
