Usually the best advice is: try it and see.

> Subject: [R] Dynamic Programming in R
> Hi R users,
> I am looking to numerically solve a dynamic program in the R
> environment. I was wondering if there were people out there
> who had expereinced success at using R for such applications.
> I'd rather continue in R than learn Mathlab.
> A concern that has been cited that may discourage R use for
> solving dynamic programs is its memory handling abilities. A
> senior researcher had a lot of trouble with R becuase on any
> given run it would eat up all the computers memory and need
> to start using the hard disk. Yet, the memory needed was not
> substantial - saving the worksapce, exiting and recalling
> would noticebly start of tthe progam at a much lower memory
> use, level and a quick deteroration in a few thousand iterations.
> Is this a problem other people have come across? Perhaps, its
> a problem already fixed, since the researcher was working on
> this in 2002 (he claimed he had tried it on windows, mac, and
> unix versions to check).
