hi all,

i encountered a rather strange problem and not sure what to do about it.
i'm runing splus3.5 on ultra sparc 2 with 500 ram and 900m swap. i try to
load a file of 3.5 meg size using the scan() command, but keeps on getting
the message

error in scan(finfin.train.sw): Unable to obtain requested dynamic memory
(this request is for 167772208 bytes, 170988296 bytes already in use)
Dumped

however, if i use read.table(), it works fine. does anyone know why?

thanks,

fei
