Hi all,

RProf with memory profiling = TRUE provides a useful breakdown of R's
memory usage into small vectors, big vectors and nodes.  Is there a
way to get this information from the command line? gc() aggregates
small and big vectors into one number and (obviously) also does a gc.
Are there any other options?
