Hi All:

I am running GAP 3.4 on a Pentium 133 machine with 32 megs of memory (in
a DOS window from within Windows 95). I am interested in getting hold of
all the Sylow_3 subgroups of Sp_6(5), but whenever I try the GAP command:

gap> SylowSubgroup(G,3);

where G has been defined as :

gap> G:=SymplecticGroup(6,5);

I get an out of memory error (after the machine sits and thinks for about
thirty hours). What am I doing wrong?

I have tried allocating more memory to the program by changing the
command line in GAP.BAT and that hasn't helped. Also Windows 95
supposedly is better with memory allocation, though I am not sure whether
I believe that or not :) Any suggestions on how I can get hold of all
the Sylow_3 subgroups of Sp_6(5), without having to shift to another
machine would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance.
