Linker Symbol Table Size ID Number: Q24619
5.00 OS/2 docerr
Question: After receiving a “L1053 - symbol table overflow” LINK error message, I increased the amount of available memory on my machine by disabling terminate-and-stay-resident software. The link is now successful. Page 369 of the “Microsoft Codeview and Utilities Software Development Tools for the Microsoft OS/2 Operation System Pre-Release” manual indicates the symbol table limit is 256K. Why does the amount of available memory affect this size?
Response: The linker symbol table is no longer limited by 256K, but by the amount of available memory on your machine. The documentation on Page 369 is incorrect.
