[[!tag linux software draft]]
+Having spent a week or two at fixing up a code for "Genetic Classification of Populations Using Supervised Learning" was interesting as it was, but I was baffled at why there were constant fopen's and fclose's for loading up an input file that never got altered.
+Removing the fopen/fclose calls to point to a piece of memory automagically made the the code run about 20% faster. The code isn't as slow as I thought it was going to be, it runs at quite an acceptable rate now.
