[34S] Time diff. STO.00 vs. STO 00 ?

RE: [34S] Time diff. STO.00 vs. STO 00 ?

Thanks again for responding.

I was indeed thinking of a quick loop calculation obviously, but I was more interested in the theoretical conceptualization upon which you just wrote - thanks. Yes, the LocR gave me some surprises as I tried to de-allocate on-the-fly via LocR 00.

What surprised me was the persistence of the locals even after I exited the program but did not yet detach the pointer. I was wondering if the internal local assignment perhaps was stored in a faster but volatile memory bank (i.e. stack) than the global registers. Unfortunately I don't know if the 34s hardware has such internal sophistications. That's why I try to on-stack my interim data as I assume it is a lot faster to do stack rolls than say STO xx and then RCL xx.

While here, did you touch upon the internal housekeeping of the 34s in respect to (de)fragmentation of files? Do the files individually have to be completely contiguous?
