Hello,

            I'm trying to do a cluster analysis on a large data set. I tried it out with a smaller one first, but I got this error:  

> hc<-hclust(dist(x),"ave")

Error: cannot allocate vector of size 4129151 Kb  

The data sample used (i.e. "x") is a numerical data set of size 32513 by 31  

Does anyone know how I can do this analysis? Is R capable of this data size?
Ultimately I wanna do an analysis on a dataset of size 32513 by 220    

Thanks!
