a bit old but still valid I think:
And also more or less valid:
Since out = rand(10^9,4) gives an out of memory on 64bit but out = rand(10^9,3) works.
And you can run
[str,maxsize] = computer
in order to figure out the maximum number of elements allowed in an array with this version of MATLAB. See doc under
