digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14859] New: static declared array with more than 16MB size


          Issue ID: 14859
           Summary: static declared array with more than 16MB size should
                    be allowed in struct and class declaration
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: nightmarex1337 hotmail.com

import std.stdio;

struct Stuff
    double someData, otherData;
    wchar[120] someFilePath;

    // byte[1024*1024*16] hugeArray; // Error: index 16777216 overflow for
static array

    byte[1024*1024*8] hugeArrayPart_1; // dirty hack
    byte[1024*1024*8] hugeArrayPart_2;

    SomeOtherComplexStruct theComplexStruct;

int main(string[] argv)
    Stuff* st = new Stuff();
    return 0;

16MB or more sized types should be allowed in order to make above code work
without using dirty hacks

"global static sized arrays" and "static sized arrays inside static
class/struct" more than 16MB size should still not compile (or maybe a warning
is better?) they just blow up output size and also heard optlink cause problems
but don't know if it's relevant to above code.
