Subject: Re: large hash tables
Thank you all for the assistance.

I've resolved the Stack_overflow problem by using an Array instead of
a Hashtbl; my keys were just consecutive integers, so this later
approach is clearly preferable.

However, the memory usage is still pretty bad...it takes nearly an
order of magnitude more memory than the equivalent C++ program. While
the C++ program required 800 MB, my ocaml program requires roughly 6
GB. Am I doing something very inefficiently? My revised code appears
below.

Also, if you have any other coding suggestions I'd appreciate hearing
them. I'm a long-time coder but new to Ocaml and eager to learn.
