Determining available memory

Has anyone found out how to determine the available real and virtual memory
in Matlab for Windows? I looked at the Tech Support Section at the Mathworks
web site but found no information.

We need to decimate a number of large data files. We want to break the
files into parts and choose the largest size that will fit in real
memory (i.e. won't start swapping to virtual memory).

We can (and probably will) end up writing a MEX function, but just for
the sake of future reference we'd like to know if there is a way to
determine how much real and virtual memory is left.

Bavaria is just like Wisconsin, except they speak mostly German.
