Hi all,

I use Splus version 3.4 Release 1 for SUN SPARC. I'm a novice user, so
please help me out!

I'm trying to merge two data sets by two common columns. One has 9
columns and approximately 130,000 rows. The other has 3 columns and has
about 140,000 rows.
Original data sets are saved as ASCII text. I read these two data sets
as data frames into S-plus, and then tried two merge them by using merge
(and merge.data.frame) command.
However, this method didnot work properly; at the first try I quit after
waiting about an hour. I changed object.size and memory options, but
this did not help either.

Any recommendations???

Thanks,

Atakan Yalcin
