Subject: Fatal error: out of memory

I am using ocaml 3.08, and when running my executable on certain kind of 
data I get the message :
Fatal error: out of memory.

To diagnose the problem and as adviced in the user manual,  I have run 
ocamlrun with the option -v.
It displays lots of "growing heap..." messages with the heap size 
growing slowly.
In such situations the user manual says there is an attempt to construct 
a data structure with too many cells.

I know this may look a very naive question,
but is is possible to increase the heap size?

Thank you in advance
