  IRIX has no way to set up a RAM disk (a personal computerish term for
  a part of memory which can be used like a very fast disk) because it
  already has a sophisticated disk caching mechanism, which will
  probably do a better job of minimizing disk reads than you would if
  you were deciding what to put on a RAM disk.
