import std.file;
read ("/path/to/bigfile", 1024);

a core.exception.OutOfMemoryError is thrown.


This is because a buffer the size of "/path/to/bigfile" is allocated,
instead of 1024



Go to file std/file.d line 327
change maxInitialAlloc to minInitialAlloc

When done, the maxInitialAlloc is no longer usefull and may be removed.
