I am trying to increase the memory R can use. I am running R 
under Windows on a machine with 2 GB of physical RAM and 4GB 
of paged memory.

I wrote in the R property windows --sdi --max-mem-size=4094M, 
but the R itself when it is doing a bayesian modelling (geoR) it 
stops at 1,096K and i get memory errors because it cannot 
allocate a new segment of about 500K of memory.

I don't have Visual Basic so i cannot use the other commands 
suggested in Help.

Also, if i am using memory.size(max=TRUE) i get a value 
corresponding to about 1024K, and if i am using 
memory.limit(size=NA) i get a value of about 4000K.

How can i force R to use more memory?

thank you for any suggestion,
