  I am trying to read yaml-file which is not so large (7 GB) and I have
plenty of memory.
However I get this error:

$  R --version
R version 3.6.1 (2019-07-05) -- "Action of the Toes"
Copyright (C) 2019 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)

keys <- read_yaml("/data/gpg/gpg-keys.yaml")

Error in paste(readLines(file), collapse = "\n") :
  result would exceed 2^31-1 bytes

2^31-1 is only 2GB.

Please advise,
