Thanks! I didn't know that.

Is there a package that provides methods for mmap, like sum(x) or maybe even y=x+z where x, and z are mmaps?

I assume that once you mmap to a huge file, you do operations on it by working on chunks at a time... are there packages for that, or do I have to write my own code?
