Re: High memory usage when compiling array of shared_ptr in gcc 4.6.2+

Hi Philipp and Jonathan,

-Ofcourse, Jonathan is right.
I was thinking in the direction: If allocation fails, you have the chance of trying with a smaller buffer.
(I often do this myself, when the size of the buffer can be reduced).
Personally, I always try making my code, so it has low requirements, but can take advantage of available resources.


Love,
Jens
