I am using the new R version (R 2.1.1) but when I try to use gcrma package the program stops to work. I have the following error messages regarding the failure to obtain enough memory "cannot allocate vector of size...." " reached total allocation 510 Mega" How could I enhance the program memory? What is the right syntax? thank you for your help regards stefania

After this info, I predict the answer will be: - use a machine with more memory - use a Linux system instead of Windows as it is easier to use more memory there. - use a 64-bit Linux system to use GBs of RAM. But the real question may be: how can you accomplish your task on a memory limited system. Best, + seth
