Hi Toufigh,

You could add more physical memory to your system if it is 64 bits, not sur=
e if that would make sense on 32 bits.

Otherwise, if your dataset is large enough, you could draw several random s=
ubsamples of the dataset and do the graph on that. And/or use other ways of=

Hope this helps,

Subject: [NMusers] Memory problems with Xpose


I am trying to plot model parameters vs. covariates suing Xpose. The data =
file is rather large and I get the following message:

In initialize(value, ...) :
  Reached total allocation of 1535Mb: see help(memory.size)
2: In initialize(value, ...) :
  Reached total allocation of 1535Mb: see help(memory.size)
Error in print(parm.vs.cov(.cur.db)) :
  error in evaluating the argument 'x' in selecting a method for function '=
print': Error: cannot allocate vector of size 171 Kb

Can anybody offer a remedy?
