(Sorry for top posting):
You are mad! Why on God's earth would you want
to create a list containing 60 MILLION elements ?
What is the use case ? What are you solving ?
You may have 4G of ram, but I very seriously
doubt you have 4G of ram available to Python.
I have no idea how many bytes of memory
storing each element of a list consumes
let alone each float object, but I assure you
it's not going to be anywhere near that of
60494500 4-bytes spaces (do floats in C
normally consume 4 bytes) in C.
