running out of memory

    Jan 27 2013 | 11:31 pm
    Is it possible to increase the memory allocated for javascript ?
    I get this "out of memory" error whenever I am trying to load a big (1Mo) text file into a javascript string.
    Or should I switch to another programming language ?

      No - user-allocation of memory to one process or another (let alone a programming lang?) is not a feature of modern OSes, thank $deity.

      You would probably be better off to handle your text file as an array of Strings, allocating one line of text to each string. Or reading in a couple of kB at a time.
