First of all, sorry for not replying to your previous query. I'm rather

Remember that foreground and background tasks have different ticks/seconds
allocations. Your verb suspends and then filereads, i.e. it's a background
task. The eval is a foreground task.
Try: ;;suspend(0);fileread("markov/#110","flink") to test this out.
In any case you would either need to raise the background seconds
allocation, if this suits your purpose - or better read the information in
chunks, or use filegrep/fileextract to locate the info you want, then use
fileread to read a few selected lines from the file. Reading a huge file in
one go is bound to be slow.
