Today, I am confronted to a difficulty I cannot manage.

When I try to use the tool "r.resamp.rst", it gives me as answer:

*r.resamp.rst input=map@PERMANENT ew_res=11 ns_res=11 pcurv=curv

interpolate() failed

ERROR: split_and_interpolate() failed*

I have 14GB left on my hard disk so I don't understand why they are saying me that :/

I tried to find solution, and I found some answers (e.g. here : but I don't understand ^^ They speak about a "ulimit -f" function, but where should I write it ? It doesn't work in GRASS. I am on Windows, maybe is that the problem.

SO in conclusion, I am more than lost so if someone could help me it would be perfect! Thank you, b.raoul
