Increasing Memory Availability In Eclipse

I often work with large projects in Eclipse so I'm frequently using all of the memory allocated to Eclipse. On MacOS X the configuration file is located here:

/Applications/eclipse/Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse.ini

By default the following memory is allocated:

...
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m
...

I've changed this to:

...
-Xms256m
-Xmx512m
...

Henry, the before and after values are the same. I'm switching to mac soon so I'm interested.

Ha! You're completely right, but I guess you can look for the right lines.
