jayemerson/big.char: Provides Very Large Vectors of Character Strings

This package extends bigmemory's big.matrix objects to support big vectors of character strings. The only constraint is the user-specified maximum character length which must be satisfied for every string in the vector. Shorter strings are padded with NAs, consuming (and wasting) space, but this is unavoidable given the use of memory-mapped files.
