growing process size in simulation
Fri, 11 Oct 2002 20:30:00 +0200
I came across this in a simulation I ran under 1.6.0: If I do something
R> x <- rnorm(10)
R> rval <- NULL
R> for(i in 1:100000) rval <- t.test(x)$p.value
then the process size remains at about 14M under 1.5.1, but it seems to
be almost linearly growing up to more than 100M under 1.6.0.
I know that the above simulation is nonsense, but it was the simplest I
could come up with to reproduce the behaviour. It doesn't depend on
t.test, if I use wilcox.test(x)$p.value the same happens...
I could reproduce this behaviour under Linux and Solaris, the exact
versions are given below.
the problem exists on
system i686, linux-gnu
system sparc, solaris2.7
but not on
system i386, linux-gnu
