Hello Vitalie,

thanks for your insights.  If you wanted to, you could download TERR from


but you would need to register on TIBCOmmunity first, I think!!!

But maybe it doesn't worth it, I was going to check claimed speed and
memory management against open source R and Revolution Analytics

Thanks anyway,
