***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi All, How does one deals with a really large network (14k nodes, 70k edges)? I'm trying my first steps in R - I thought it could do anything, but this size scares it away "Error: protect(): protection stack overflow" for edgelist and "Error: cannot allocate vector of size 1523603 Kb" for plot request. I have raised R's max memory to the point it tells me not to be silly...Should my relationship with R be terminated at this early stage? I'd love to compose a succinct summary of replies and repost for the public good. Thanks, -- Uri Shwed ISERP, Columbia University Room 805, 420 W 118th St. New York 10027 NY Tel: 212 854 9374 _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
