Huge memory requirments
Posted on 2002-07-28
I'm writting a C program which uses up piles of memory. Currently it fails to allocate the memory I need (calling calloc returns with a null pointer). The thing is I think I *have* the actual memory requested. I use a Win2000 dual 1MHz station with 2Gig physical RAM and adaquate HD space. I'm writting in VC++ ver6 prof. Edition.
Here is my question: Can anyone suggest what I can do to make sure the program actually takes advantage of the full memory available? Again, although I use up a lot of mem, I am pretty sure there is still much left available which the programm is not using. Can this be true? If so, what should I do?
