Hehe, ok :o) I understand from your clear explanation in your reply. GDL
is for different thing that i wanted to use it for. I want some
ObjectiveC/DB bridge not for object mapping but for fetching large
arrays of values or almost-anonymous structures.

why I asked for file was simple - GDL is kind of DB source independent
so I thought that there is an interface for files in standard
distribution.

How does SQLClient cope with large arrays/queries with many returned
rows?
