I have 31142 items to keep track of and I wonder what the best approach
would be to store them. Each item should have an equal number of fields,
just a few, with not much text data in each. I could make a comma delimited
field with 31142 lines, a stack with 31142 cards or a database with 31142
records. I need to sort them in several ways and I wonder what the fastest
way is to store and access the data. Any suggestions? What are the benefits
of each solution?
