Finally, the best solution is 64-bit address spaces.
You will definitely cause paging if you make lavish use of these
And don't think it is impossible to run out of VM on a 64-bit
system. Someday someone will. Would he be checking for nil returned
for malloc? ;-)
Everyone should always check malloc returns! Actually it's quite
easy to run out of VM on a 64-bit system - all you need is a full
64-bit addressing does make it much easier to deal with large
datasets though - Windows x64 on a machine with 16GB of RAM
absolutely whips the G5 in our applications (sadly)...
