if you have 8GB of memory it should be easy to handle.

Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

>>> I am trying to cut out a small section of a very large 2-dimensional grayscale image as a tiff in R, but it is having difficulty handling such large files. I have looked at bigmemory and ff packages but it is unclear how I can use these packages with tiffs. Can anyone please suggest something? I have tried tiff and rtiff libraries.
