Walter,

Thanks for the new template support.

However I'm having a problem :<. The compiler runs out of memory but 
does not give an indication as to why or where.

Is there anything I can turn on to find out where the compiler has got 
to so that I can attempt to create an RBT.

I am trying to build the very latest STLport from www.stlport.org, and 
thus pushing the new template code in the compiler rather hard. I don't 
mind if the output is large or slows the compiler down, just so that I 
can narrow the problem down to a few lines of code.

I know that you have listed the new template functionality, but could 
you please elaborate the actual acceptable syntax that you have 
implemented, as it is proving difficult to work out what may not have 
been implemented. I think I may have found a few problems but I am not 
totally sure that I am not expeecting too much for now. I will try to 
create some examples that demonstrate the problems (but not the crash 
one), but it may take me a while as I want to check against g++ (v3.03) 
and GreenHills (3.5) just to make sure it's not me!
Regards
Damian

I appreciate greatly the help you're giving. The way to find out where the
compiler is possibly hanging is to compile with -e -l, and then a .lst file
will be created up to the point where it failed. If that doesn't work, the
only think left is to try the binary approach (delete the second half of the
source, if it still fails, delete the second half of what's left, etc.).

Thanks for the suggestion Walter.

I have moved my discussion to the c++ newsgroup as suggested by Christof

Maybe it's a recursive macro that DMC doesn't correctly handle yet (I think I have reported the bug a few months ago), try to compile/preprocess this test-case: #define A(x) x #define test A(test) test And yes, STLport uses these kind of constructs...
 I am trying to build the very latest STLport from www.stlport.org, and

I have already made some progress trying to compile STLport-4.5.3. I am even able to compile simple programs like these (with an unofficial 8.29.7n beta): #include <string> int main() { std::string a; return 0; } But as soon as I add some string operations (something like a.assign("test")), I get an "Internal error: struct 3273". Walter, can you give me a hint what I should be looking for to track it down? BTW, I have put a diff against STLport-4.5.3 on my Web-page: http://cmeerw.org/files/dm/STLport-4.5.3-dm.diff (you need the Cygwin tools or a Linux/Unix machine to apply the patch with "patch -sp1 <STLport-4.5.3-dm.diff" inside your STLport-4.5.3 directory) bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?
