Hi Jun,

This is not a question related to finance.  You will get more help
posting to the R-help mailing list.  If you do, be sure to include the
minimum information requested in the "Surprising behavior and bugs"
section of the posting guide
(http://www.r-project.org/posting-guide.html).  I would also recommend
looking through the results of a search for "too many open files" on
www.rseek.org before posting.
