[R] heap memory exhausted

I always have following error message when I try to read
a big ascii-file:
> inzp<-read.data()
> Error: heap memory (1953 Kb) exhausted [needed 0 Kb more]
read.data() is a small function that reads the ascii-file.
When I cut the ascii-file to a small one I don't have this
Can I extend this 'heap memory' for reading big data files? How?
I'm working with R on a Linux PC-machine.
Thank you for your help!
