Fast load variables.

The purpose of this package is to be able to save and load only the needed variables/columns of a dataframe in special binary files (tar archives) - which seems to be a lot faster method than loading the whole binary object (RData files) via load() function, or than loading columns from SQLite/MySQL databases via SQL commands (see vignettes). Performance gain on SSD drives is a lot more sensible compared to basic load() function. The performance improvement gained by loading only the chosen variables in binary format can be useful in some special cases (e.g. where merging data tables is not an option and very different datasets are needed for reporting), but be sure if using this package that you really need this, as non-standard file formats are used!
