I get the following error while doing group theoretic computations in Sage:

GAPError: Error, reached the pre-set memory limit
(change it with the -o command line option)

How overcome it by allowing GAP use more memory? Where exactly I should use -o option?

Here is a code producing an error:

def a138077_q(q): G = PSL(3, q); d = G.order(); return d // max(H.order() for H in G.conjugacy_classes_subgroups() if H.order()<d)

A solution at this link suggests that -o should be added to variable like = 'gap -r -o 4G '

For my problem, increase to 64G produced GAPError: Error, the perfect residuum is too large, but that's a different story.
