I have a select that is taking too long. Many of the fields are I-Descs. Some
are extracting a piece of info from the file, some are translates to other
files, and some are running subroutines.
I understand that danger of indexing a translate or subroutine (if the source
data changes, the index is not updated). However, I am toying with the idea of
building a new I-desc that in some way combines the data in the core file
itself. For example, if I need F11 & F20[4,1] and F40, make an I-desc that
combines these and then index that I-desc.
Just as a sanity check, does this sound like a reasonable thing to do so that I
can at least grab a subset of the data I need prior to actually plowing through
the translates and subroutines?
