Avoiding File Access Multiple Times.

I have a program which reads data from a file several times consecutively.

It accesses the same file each time for a different operation which is causing the program to run very slowly.

Is there any way I can avoid having to read it several times and get copy which I can access faster?

What type of file is it? What kind of data?
One way to do it is cache it in memory if possible.
