I posted a problem before regarding a "saved independed application" :
(note: the problem is for save-application only.)
MCL qiuts because of "out of system memory" when LISP calls C to set up buffers.
My first attempt to deal with this problem was the C code. After many experiments, I finally
decided to test the LISP side. I wrote a "small" LISP program combined with the same C
code and no crashes!
The problem, I think, is because the independent application is getting too big, which is
about 1M bytes now. (The final application will be more.)
I searched the mcl-info archive of the last year and found out there was a question about
how to increase the heap size of MCL 1.3.2. It was never answered for MCL1.3.2, but was
answered for 2.0 instead. (i.e., by changing LSIZ)
It will take a while before I convert my programs from MCL 1.3.2 to 2.0. But, will 2.0 solve
this problem? Is there still a solution in 1.3.2?
