read huge stata file into R studio

I have a huge dataset in STATA that i want to read into R. This dataset has around 7 million observation and can't be read into R. error message appear:
Error: cannot allocate vector of size 27.8 Mb
How can I read such a big file into R studio?

Which code did you run for attempting to import the file?

I am using read.dta13().. I managed to increaase the memory limit by using memory.limit(size=500000). But still it is so slow to perform any operation in Rstudio on these huge data. Is it hardware problem, or i can do something about it ?


Which package does the read.dta13() function belong to?

Also, working with very large datasets in memory can be slow generally. But there are packages that can help you with that:
