Problem reading pedigree

Hi ASRemlers,

I'm working in an analysis with a pedigree involving ~84,000 
individuals. When running the program I get an error reading the 
pedigree. The error message includes maxPED=500,000, which I assume is 
the maximum number of individuals that ASReml can analyse with the 
assigned memory. Does anyone know what is happening here?

I'm running the program with option -s3. Changing to -s4 or -s5 doesn't 
change anything, even when running in DOS mode ASReml should be able to 
access that much memory.

 Maybe increase MEMORY (-Ss) option or verify pedigree file
