Array Size Limits

Not to sure what you mean by GCC won't run? Does the program compile and
then seg fault when you run it?
I ran into a similar problem a few months ago (google for my name and
you'll see the posts).
Yes there is a limit to the size of your arrays can be when put on the
A = malloc(500000*sizeof(double));
this should declare the array in the main bulk of your memory. Then
A as per usual.
