Comment (by rhaas):

 Sigh. Another comment lost due to the captcha system badly interacting
 with the browser.

 I wanted to ask if we know more details on what makes large files fail to
 compile. Is it the linker, the compiler, or the OS limiting memory

 I played around with the best way of compiling and found that yes indeed
 arrays are bad and therefore use a long string with all characters encoded
 in octal notation. I am also using only gcc so that I have a compiler that
 is the same everywhere. Perl is also fine with me its not in POSIX though
 so I did not want to use it in SpEC. Really the intention is only to show
 that one can pipe the source into gcc.
