Dear List,  

I'm trying to use R under Windows on a huge database in MySQL via ODBC (technical reasons for this...). Now I want to read tables with some 160.000.000 entries into R. I would be lucky if anyone out there has some good hints what to consider concerning memory management. I'm not sure about the best methods reading such huge files into R. for the moment I spilt the whole table into readable parts stick them together in R again.  

Any hints welcome.
