I am using R1.2.2 on win98 with 64 meg of RAM
I try to read a big csv file and get the error :

a <- read.csv("c:/all2.csv",header=T)
Error: vector memory exhausted (limit reached?)
In addition: Warning message: 
Reached total allocation of 16Mb: see help(memory.size) 
Lost warning messages

from there on, nothing works
File-Exit, ^F4, q() , top right cross, the same message keep on 
appearing and the only solution is to close down the computer.
Is this a bug?
Thanks for any help.
