Sigh. Another comment lost due to the captcha system badly interacting
with the browser.
I wanted to ask if we know more details on what makes large files fail to
compile. Is it the linker, the compiler, or the OS limiting memory
I played around with the best way of compiling and found that yes indeed
arrays are bad and therefore use a long string with all characters encoded
in octal notation. I am also using only gcc so that I have a compiler that
is the same everywhere. Perl is also fine with me its not in POSIX though
so I did not want to use it in SpEC. Really the intention is only to show
that one can pipe the source into gcc.
