Hi there
I have a solexa fastq file containing some 27 million reads (file size  
approx. 4 GB). my plan is to upload this into R for subsequent editing  
with ShortRead tools. The R version is 64-bit linux, the computer has  
8 GB RAM. Can anybody provide a rough estimate of how long the input  
will take? hours, days...?
