I performed a rather large calculation, and saved the results in a file
using the construction


This file is about 1 gigabyte.

Today I wanted to do some extra analysis of the results, so I started a
new notebook and typed

  << myfile.m

The kernel choked on this and I receive a message:

  No more memory available.
  Mathematica kernel has shut down.
  Try quitting other applications and then retry.

Any advice on how to access all of this nice saved data?  I can always
rerun my calculation, and save the results in more managable chunks, but
it is rather inconvenient, and will take up a couple of days.

I am running Mathematica version 4.1 on windows 98:  pentium 3-500 with
320 megs of ram.
