@s0rce Then you should know that it likely has a bug. I seem to remember that I had to fix it in this answer, but I did not propagate the changes back. Please see the edit history of that answer to see which changes I made there.

comment DownValues for Built-in Functions
@Szabolcs I believe this is true. In general, built-in functions may have both lower-level (inaccessible) and top-level definitions.

comment DownValues for Built-in Functions
Built-in rules for system functions may indeed have DownValues, SubValues etc, but they are not seen and not accessible from the top level. You may indirectly interact with them (and possibly change their behavior) using Block, and you can also see them in action sometimes when tracing evaluation with TraceInternal -> True, but this seems to be as much as one can say about them from the top-level. Some functions also do have some number of top-level rules - those usually have the ReadProtected attribute set. You can see those rules if you remove the attribute.

comment Giving JLink Huge Memory by Default
For Rlink, there is an option "JRELocation" for InstallR[]. You can use it not just to specify the location of your JRE, but also to enter command-line parameters, in particular those that govern the memory usage limits for JVM.

comment Paging RAM in case of memory shortage issue
@JacobAkkerboom "Did your formatter pretty-print the result automatically?" - yes, that's exactly what it does. In case you have not seen,here is a description. It is now quite easy to use for SE posts, and I already used it for a number of my recent answers. It does contain a number of bugs though, which I hope to address soon, but you can give it a try.

comment Paging RAM in case of memory shortage issue
@JacobAkkerboom Actually, I looked at how it would look and decided not to edit, partially because of the SE code rendenring bugs regarding the use of symbols with $ in them. Here is how it looks, just in case.
