Just because I was curious, I wrote a couple of programs.

Program one just writes some XML into dynamic memory.

Program two writes to a IFS *TYPE2 file. Once as regular IFS and once
through a TEMP UDFS(In Memory).

I did 1 million loops writing 4 lines. Result was a file of 93MB.

Results.

In memory only. 12.257 seconds
In IFS only 19.830 seconds
IFS Temp 19.390 seconds

Surprised that the IFS temp did not have more of an impact.

So the question is. Is it worth that 7 seconds for the additional
complexity of allocating memory dynamically?
