It depends. Good, especially hardware supported speeders DO accelerate LOAD, CHRIN reads and "$" directory reading. Still - as I wrote earlier - in any case LOAD is always faster. So, yes this can be sped up but generally it is not so important. The amount of data when reading a directory is small and when output directly to the screen, it may even be a sort of advantage when the speed of the output gives you more time to read it ;-)

Of course not :-P ;-)
