Dear sirs,

I'm using the Splancs package to compute standard errors of the estimates of a 
spatio-temporal k function.
When I use as spatial and temporal distances too long vectors (respectively 60 
and 80 entries) for a dataset of 1000 observations, R gives me the message

Error: cannot allocate vector of size 180000 Kb

Reached total allocation of 512 Mb.

I ran the function memory.size() and obtained 392000000 more or less.

Can anyone help me? 

Thanks in advance.
