hello :-)

i got a tibook 1ghz G4, 512mb memory and 1gig swap. i need to compile a really big c++ source code file (162meg after pre-processing) using gcc 2.95.3. i just don't seem to have enough memory; linux starts thrashing and that's about it. does any of you have more memory and is willing to donate his/her box to compile the file? just drop me an email or contact me online. i really would appreciate it!

Not that I have a PPC machine lying around with 3GB of RAM or anything, but just for curiosity's sake, what is this project you're trying to compile? 163MB for one source file seems... excessive?

it's for a project i am working on. the file (it's the core of a processor emulator+binary translator) is generated from specifications, and unfortunately the specs and their processing tool happen to generate such a massive file. i don't like it and it's one of the major drawbacks at the moment, but i have to deal with it.

compiling on a P4 host takes about 10hrs, if i remember correctly....
