Please,

I have a 2GB computer and a huge time-series to embedd, and i tried increasing memory.limit() and memory.size(max=TRUE), but nothing.

Just before the command:

> memory.size(max=TRUE)
[1] 13.4375
> memory.limit()

[1] 1535.875
> gc()

         used (Mb) gc trigger (Mb) max used (Mb)
Ncells 209552  5.6     407500 10.9   350000  9.4
Vcells 125966  1.0     786432  6.0   496686  3.8

I increased the memory limit:

> memory.limit(3000)

NULL
> memory.limit()

[1] 3000
> memory.size()

[1] 11.33070
> memory.size(max=TRUE)
[1] 13.4375
> gc()

         used (Mb) gc trigger (Mb) max used (Mb)
Ncells 209552  5.6     407500 10.9   350000  9.4
Vcells 125964  1.0     786432  6.0   496686  3.8

And even trying to increase the memory.limits, i still get and error.

Any sugestions?

Thanks in advance.
