General Strategies and Extended Examples

Part of the Statistics and Computing book series (SCO)


Most S-PLUS programmers find early in their careers that they have written code which exhausts the physical memory (RAM) available to the S-PLUS process, and then proceeds to spend almost all its time in allocating virtual memory. Such code can reduce the fastest workstation to page thrashing, which will reduce severely the size of problem which can be tackled. This chapter give some hints on using S more efficiently.
