@Frank It should be noted that to benefit, both your source code and your output files should be on the ramdisk.

comment Creating a ram disk on Linux
@goldilocks It's anecdotal evidence, but when compiling our Java projects with Maven, there is a significant speedup when using a ramdisk. I would guess though that this is more because of seek time than read time.

comment How to know if a disk is an SSD or an HDD
SATA (Serial ATA) refers to the connection type of the drive, and does not imply that it is a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). SSDs can simultaneously be SATA, so I'm suggesting an edit to the title.
