Speed up a slow loop

Well… the idea was, if storing and working with the data as arrays was crucial, then I have a method for creating sqLite databases, memory or otherwise, from arrays and then back again. I don’t know if mobile devices can use memory databases, or perhaps the data is too much for mobile device limits, so I am sailing murky waters there. But once the overhead of iterating through the array once is spent, recursive querying of a memory or even a file database is much more efficient.
