I'm operating on some largish problems in which I'm making a graph, using MakeGraph from the Combinatorica package. When I exceed a certain size, the thing runs for a bit and then gives an out of memory error and then the kernel shuts down. I'm running Vista on a dual core with 3Gb of RAM. I've tracked down the problem, I think. Mathematica runs the operation in RAM, when it exceeds the on board RAM, it shuts down. My question is why doesn't it build a pagefile like most windows applications? Then I could run anything that didn't actually use up the free disk space.
