 Hey all,

I have been updating my pathprint and pathprintGeoData packages (in 3.7)
and I encountered the following error in one of them (only on windows

Error: cannot allocate vector of size 237.3 Mb

Here is the report: https://bioconductor.org/checkResults/3.7/bioc-LATEST/

How can I fix this? Thanks in advance.
