Restrictions, Compiler Limits, and System Limits

There are a number of areas that need care when you use them, as well as various limits imposed by the Compiler, the Run-time system, and your hardware and operating system.

The Compiler and the intermediate code that it produces are environment independent. The limits associated with the Compiler are environment independent also and cannot be exceeded in any environment. Run-time, operating system and hardware limits might also exist which might well be lower than those of the Compiler.
