All ra* programs are stream processors, at least from the
perspective of the academic relational database community,
and they have to sequentially work on each datum in order to
do their thing. I'm not sure what you mean by 'suppress' the
data, but in order to not process the data sequentially and
get things like total bytes, etc ... you have to aggregate
the data, and then you have to worry about what identifiers
you want to keep, which ones you can throw away etc.....
ragator() is our example of ra aggregation, and so you
definitely should give it a try first, as it will do what
you indicated in your first mail.
If you do start writing your own ra* clients, don't hesitate
to send mail!!!!!!
