At one time I used an MS-DOS application suite whose database component
stored predefined queries in individual files. There were _many_
predefined queries, so _many_ small files.
This took up a lot of disk space, and running a predefined query was
slow because of the need to search for the file (the FAT layout used a
I put all of the predefined queries into a single file and called an
external program to look up the query on demand, copy it into a file,
and then performed the query.
That saved a _lot_ of disk space, and, despite the overhead of calling
an external program, was _much_ faster!
