I have several documents I need to transform using XSLT 2.0. However, with very large xml input files I have noticed that Saxon 8 (or java) runs out of memory, kicking out this error message:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

Is there a way to allot more memory at the command line or in a config file?

I am running this on Mac OS x 10.4.11

java version "1.5.0_13"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_13- b05-241)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_13-121, mixed mode, sharing)

My command line:

java -jar /usr/local/bin/saxon8.jar input.xml sort.xsl > sortout.xml
