I just joined the list.  I have searched the archives unsuccessfully
trying to learn how to approach my problem.  So I have 2 questions - 

	1) How can I best pass a large list to another object?  

	2) How could I have found related discussion with a search of
the archives?

If I pass a large list via a parameter, there will be two copies of the
list.  Is there a way to avoid this additonal demand on RAM other than
having the lists global?  

Thanks for any help and advice on effectively using the tutor mailing
