Thank you for this reminder|tip ! I didn't re-read this document since
... oh, my ... very early (1.x ?) versions. At which time my favorite
peeve against R was the fixed memory allocation scheme.
I would have thought that 64 bits machines could take advantage of a
wider bus and (marginally ?) faster instructions to balance larger
pointers. Am I mistaken ?
Thank again !
