Re: st: Two wishes
Since you understand the OS issue regarding the use of HD as RAM,
could you explain this to me??
I have a almost 4 yr old computer with 1GB RAM on it. It's running
Windows XP and it would allow me to set mem 900m even though I think
it is not physically possible. It used to have Windows 98 SE on it
and then I couldn't set mem more than 700m, and it struggled even when
it was doing 700m with lots of reboot, etc.
Then I have two newer Windows XP computers which wouldn't swap. One
is a laptop with 1GB RAM, I can only set mem 900m when I have shut
down almost everything that can possibly be shut down. And 900m is
the max I can do. Another is a oldish desktop (may be 2 yr old)
physically it has 3GB RAM and I can only set mem 1200m tops.
It is the oldest computer amongst the 3 I've got that can do the
swapping, is there anything I can do to the two new ones to get them
to swap too?

Stata doesn't do it, its a feature of the operating system. *NIX
systems have a portion of the hard-drive partioned as 'swap' space
which will be used as memory if RAM is maxed out. Windows does
something similar as well.
