Re: Max size of data in C++ prog?

Is there a maximum size to the data segment in a C++ program? More specifically, I am trying to write a program with a very large array. The program compiles OK (since C/C++ do no bounds checking on arrays), but segfaults when I try to run it. The limit seems to be at just under 8MB. Is there a way to allocate more space for data?

Are you using malloc()? From what I understand of C memory management this should take care of that problem.
