large tables

I've been using the table command to read in a time series of solar irradiance. This has worked fine when the number of values in the table is for eight years (2920 irradiance values). However, when I try to double this amount I run into trouble with Simile. Any tips?

Forums:'re right about problems with big tables, they're even worse under Linux which is why I haven't commented on the last model you sent me yet! But as for tips, I have two:

1) Use the fixed parameter mechanism, or the time series mechanism, instead of equation tables. This allows much larger amounts of data to be entered, and you can change your scenario without rebuilding the model.

2) Download Simile 4.6 when it becomes available in a few days. I will have sorted out some of the problems with large tables.
