I have a fairly large a list of matrices
matsLst, which takes about 15 minutes to compute (but computes successfully each time). I can test in the notebook that the computation has happened correctly.
But when I try to write it to disk using
the command takes hours to run. The last time the export happened successfully, it took three hours. Right now, it's still going on two hours. I know that disk space should not be a problem, because I have about 40 GB available on my disk.
But is there a way for me to find out just how large a particular variable is before I choose to write it or not? (I mean, the whole point of writing an MX file is to save the computation time later.)
