I suppose if the size of the heap can be the size of the address space,
presumably minus the size of the code, data, and stack segments, and
whatever bookkeeping data the run-time system needs, I'll only
run out of heap if something goes terribly wrong, like allocation in an
endless loop.

I'll have to check what actually happens and give some
thought to this issue.

Thanks to all for your help.
