AFAIK you can't; all golbal variables are squeezed in one
single segment of memory; in other words: you have too
many global variables. There's a cheapo workaround though:

check for large arrays and convert them to pointers. At
startup first allocate enough memory for the array and make
this pointer point to it. Another trick that might work (it
depends on where your compiler/linker stores static local
variables) works as follows:

Suppose you had this:

int my_array[SOME_HUGE_NUMBER];

change it into this:

int* my_array;

void init_my_array() {

static int my_array_local[SOME_HUGE_NUMBER];

my_array= my_array_local;

}

At startup, simply call init_my_array().

kind regards,
