           Summary: static array size limitation is too restrictive
           Product: D
           Version: 1.021
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: patch, rejects-valid
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: thecybershadow gmail.com


Source:
uint[4096][4096] myBigMap;

Output:
bug.d(1): Error: index 4096 overflow for static array

Remarks:
I do not see the purpose for this 'reasonable' limit (as it is called in the
source code). That range is well inside the 32-bit addressing space, and the
size is not restricted by any stack size or data segment restrictions.

Patch:
--- mtype_.c    2007-07-21 22:10:02.000000000 +0300
+++ mtype.c     2007-10-01 18:45:24.828125000 +0300
   -1832,8 +1832,6   
            n2 = n * d2;
            if ((int)n2 < 0)
                goto Loverflow;
-           if (n2 >= 0x1000000)        // put a 'reasonable' limit on it
-               goto Loverflow;
            if (n && n2 / n != d2)
            {
              Loverflow:

My temporary workaround:
Hex-edited the exe :P

------- Comment #1 from bugzilla digitalmars.com  2008-11-12 04:41 -------
The linker (optlink) fails with symbols that have more than 16Kb of static
data. It isn't an onerous restriction, as the array can be easily new'd
instead.
