In case this is helpful: I wrote a small program called "maxalloc" that
will determine empirically how much data your system allows you to
allocate in a program (via malloc/new). This will be a function of swap
space, resource limits, system configuration, and you might not have
control over some of these and need assistance from a system administrator.

For what it's worth, on my Windows XP system with Cygwin, I can only
malloc about 1GB of data, although I have 4GB of memory instaled. Surely
there is some windows configuration thingy somewhere that will change
this. Maybe someone with more Windows expertise can help!


PS. maxalloc is in the latest SRILM beta version.
