How can I solve this problem with my allocated memory?

I'm exporting a table from a MySQL database. The code is good, but the table is 250,000 rows and my pipes are apparently getting clogged based on this error:

Allowed memory size of 36700160 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24 bytes) in C:\wamp\www\json\csv_test.php on line 19

I put this at the top of my page:

ini_set("memory_limit","35M");

But to no avail. I'm missing something....

What do you think?

Do you not have more memory than that?
Why not do batches of 50,000 and see if it goes through.

What does the code say?  Please show us all of it, not just line 19.

You might also want to learn about phpinfo() so you can see what the true memory limit is before you set it to something arbitrary.  You can learn a lot from phpinfo()

Thank you, gentlemen! I figured it out and yes, Ray, I saw that too. Thanks!

BTW: Still not out of the woods. I'm a pig on roller skates, boys...
