Hi All,
       I am trying to make a hash of 38 Million ids but every time i get the
following message :

perl(191) malloc: *** mmap(size=16777216) failed (error code=12)
*** error: can't allocate region
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
Out of memory!

I am working on MacOX 10.5.8 with 4GB of memory.

I would really appreciate if anyone can help me out.
