Handling huge amounts of data

Vlad,

What are you doing with this data?  Does it have any
regularity that can be captured in a function?  How
much manipulation?  Would a binary work for you
instead of lists?

If you gave a few more details, someone might offer
some alternative ways of managing memory.  Just
because erlang doesn't have malloc and free doesn't
mean that there aren't alternative ways of storing
things.
