in reply to Accessing SQLite databases within ZIP files

Hi AppleFritter,

perhaps you could extract the SQLite database (and possibly the other files) to a ramdisk and use DBD::SQLite on it.

    That's a good idea, thanks. Unfortunately this'll also have to work on Windows, which I don't think has built-in support for that sort of thing — but yes, otherwise this would be a pretty nifty solution.

      There are RAMDisks for Windows, even free ones. I use an old version of SoftPerfect RAM Disk (v3.4.7) that is freeware, no questions asked. It seens v4.x has become payware, but v3.4.x is still available on several sites.

      I am surely not a specialist on the possibilities on Windows. My workstation runs on Windows, but our servers and databases and so on are all *nix and VMS (and even AS/400). But I am fairly sure there are some ramdisk possibilities on Windows. It even existed 30 years ago at the time of DOS.
