lots of stack to manage....

Hello all,

i've developped a kind of wee-IDE  to manage
the edition and compilation of scripts to be able
to drive a Laboratory Automation Workstation.

 In the first version, for every script  ( laboratory experiment )
 i had a folder with few files and folders.
 Now, i would like to make a stack for every experiment; such a stack
 will contains the Datas of all the old files using custom properties; but
 nothing more ( no user interface ).
 The size can be from 100kb up to 2 Mbyte of texts by stack.
 Would like to manage around  100 of these stacks.

 So, in the IDE, would like to be able to see the hundred stacks name
in one field; so the user can choose one of them with one click.

 My question is How to manage a list of all these stacks
 without putting them into RAM, except when the user choose One.

 Any tricks, ideas will be very much welcomed :-)

Regards, thierry
