Description Thomas Koenig 2005-06-02 15:43:36 UTC
Currently, there are 26 bits for encoding the size
of an object in the array descriptor for 32-bit
targets, because the size is encoded together with
the type, which takes up 6 bits, and dtype is an
index_type (which has 32 bits on a 32-bit target).

It would be nice to have a separate size field.
Comment 1 Tobias Schlüter 2005-06-05 09:59:44 UTC
So an array of the derived type couldn't have more than 2**(32-26) = 64 entries
before overflowing memory with our current scheme, and if this was enlarged the
allowed arrays would be even smaller, but it is certainly true that the sizes of
derived type array elements are limited.

Thomas, isn't the 4.3 branching a good time to work on this? Would you have time for that?
Comment 3 Francois-Xavier Coudert 2007-01-05 14:12:25 UTC
ping: Would you have either an example where this limit is encountered? Wouldn't 4.3 be ideal for that work?
Comment 4 Francois-Xavier Coudert 2007-09-14 11:31:14 UTC
I think this is related to the check in trans-types.c:

  if (size && INTEGER_CST_P (size))
      if (tree_int_cst_lt (gfc_max_array_element_size, size))
        internal_error ("Array element size too big");

  dtype = build_int_cst (gfc_array_index_type, i);

which is triggered by code such as:

  type t
    integer i001(268435456)
  end type t

  type(t), allocatable :: x(:)

  print *, size(x)
  print *, shape(x)
Comment 5 Francois-Xavier Coudert 2007-09-21 19:56:35 UTC
For now, we should simply change the ICE into a standard error.
Comment 6 Thomas Koenig 2007-12-16 19:38:41 UTC
I'll do this.
Comment 7 Thomas Koenig 2007-12-17 22:20:37 UTC
Changing this into a normal error leads to double
errors and assorted strangeness.

Unassigning myself for now.
Comment 8 Daniel Franke 2010-05-08 20:04:02 UTC
I expect, the array descriptor reform may make this fixable?!

Fixed on trunk.
