    Not disk cache, but PB does use buffering depending on the LOCK options in the OPEN statement. If LOCK SHARED is used, buffering is disabled for that file. The buffers are fairly small, but there is a definite advantage to using them where possible.

    Disk Cache

    Does PB3.5 have it's own disk cache functions? The reason I'm asking is I have an acquaintence who is using PDS and WIN98 v. 4.10.1998. The PDS app (compiled with FAR strings) freezes the win98 OS after about 30 minutes of reading several large data bases using FIELD whereas the PB version does not.
