Hi,
I just run out of Memory and the kernel shuts down. I have always tried to 
find whether Mathematica has some construct similar to sizeof() but to no 
avail. I don't think it exists. It should exist. Then I think that maybe 
that would open a Pandoras box. How would Max[] and Min[] fit into the 
Mathematica system? Which BTW returns -Infinity and Infinity, repectively.
