Interesting...could you elaborate on something though? From my C
programming days, I understood segmentation faults to generally mean
that a program was attempting to access a memory location that it
didn't own (as determined by the OS). Applying this knowledge to this
SAS error, it sounds like SAS, behind the scenes, may be attempting to
use memory it doesn't own to fulfill a request that requires more
memory than SAS is given by the OS. Why wouldn't SAS recognize that
it was out of memory and print a related message, rather than blindly
attempt to carry out the user's request and seg fault?
