Date Tue, 21 Dec 2004 16:03:25 GMT

What about creating a ramdisk filesystem, and placing the cgi c++
  routine there, this should decrease the "load" time considerably
  for multiple loads.

I'm not sure about the security implications, or risk of corruption
  of the memory, but I wouldn't think it to be too bad.
