The ACUCOBOL-GT compiler makes use of several internal tables for storing information about the COBOL program it is compiling. Most of these tables are dynamically resized as needed during compilation. A few of them are allocated a fixed amount of space. The amount of space allocated to the fixed size tables is enough for the vast majority of programs, but occasionally a program will require more space than is allocated by default. When this occurs, the compilation fails and a *** %s overflow *** error message is output. (See Appendix D, ACUCOBOL-GT Appendices manual for a more detailed explanation of the error.) In such cases, the user can increase the amount of space allocated to that table by including the appropriate -T compilation switch on the compiler command line.
The switches are:
|-Td ####||Identifier and statement table — sets the maximum number of items in each statement. The default value is 4096.|
|-Te ###||Subscript statement table — sets the maximum size for OCCURS statements. The default value is 256.|
