Question for the guru's
Date: 09/08/94

I have a question for those out there who really know
how Unix operates on a low level.  If I made a directory that
had literally tens of thousands of files in it, how much more
slowly would the seek time to those files be?  (Compared to a directory
with only a few files in it.)  If it makes any difference,
the system I'm using is System V version 4.
