Re: [MiNT] STAT bits - Ouch!

It's actually a performance enhancement by "not" having to do this.

Yes, but the conversion is not very heavy, the entire statement translates
to perhaps 8 assembler instructions, not more than 50 CPU clock ticks.

And this is the filesystem, so it can be called many times. Thus, any
saving is a performance boost regardless how small.

I tend to disagree, I bet the gain wouldn't be even measurable.
