Yes, a temp file on a virtual filesystem in memory would work. I think
the idea is to stay in RAM. But to then get it into a variable, you'd
have to use mapfile, and then get the array to be in a single variable.
There are quite a number of operations here that could be elided by some
elegant syntactic sugar to the benefit of all.
