    Arrow VM and RAM --A Simple explnation is needed

    Sometimes my computer's systray corner displays a message saying that I am running out of virtual memory, I guess I may need to increase RAM to eliminate it. Sometimes during programming, I bet you might also need to allocate VM for some objects. What is the relation between RAM and VM ? Can you show me a snapshot (picture or words alone) to diagram how the relation is made ?
    I am bored.

    Thank you.

    Yes, indeed. I think the last time I had to resort to pagefile or swap was sometime in the 90s. RAM has been plentiful since then.

    Clearly you've never needed to invert a 50000x50000 matrix.
