Description Jerry James 2004-07-29 19:27:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
Compilation of cvcl 1.1.0 fails with this error:

g++ -O2 -Wall -I/tmp/cvcl-1.1.0/src/include -I/tmp/cvcl-1.1.0 -I. -c
-D__DEPRECATED -DHAVE___GNU_CXX__EXT_HASH_MAP
-DHAVE___GNU_CXX__EXT_HASH_SET -DHAVE_CONFIG_H parsePL.cpp -o
/tmp/cvcl-1.1.0/obj/parser/linux-i686/parsePL.o

cc1plus: out of memory allocating 3906815220 bytes after a total of
18948096 bytes

Compiling with -O2 -fno-default-inline succeeds.  The file in question
is generated by bison.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc-3.3.3-7

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and unpack cvcl-1.1.0.tar.gz
2. In the cvcl-1.1.0 directory, run ./configure
3. make
    

Actual Results:  When compilation reaches the file in question, it
attempts to allocate more memory than is available and fails.

Expected Results:  GCC should not fail, although what it could do in
this situation depends on why it is trying to allocate so much memory.

Additional info:

To compile with -fno-default-inline, do:
make OPTFLAGS='-O2 -fno-default-inline'

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-07-29 19:41:00 UTC
Please provide a preprocessed source which triggers this.
(run the above command with additional -save-temps option and
attach here parsePL.ii it creates.

Comment 2 Jerry James 2004-07-29 20:03:15 UTC
Created attachment 102299 [details]
Preprocessed parsePL.cpp (bzip2ed)

I had to compress it because bugzilla complained the attachment was too large.

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-08-02 13:33:40 UTC
Exception handling in this testcase increases number of basic blocks
from around 34000 to 176000.  Some algorithms in GCC are Ospace(nBB^2),
thus your testcase is too big.
What you can do is tweak the inline limits (see man gcc on --param)
so that less inlining happens.
GCC 3.4 has better inlining algorithm, but it is too invasive change
for GCC 3.3.  FC3t1 uses GCC 3.4.x, so you might try your fortune there.
