to know, thank you.


For the crash on the big method, I investigated and created an input file
which reproduces the problem (attached as bigMethod.gs). The log is attached
as well.

My theory was wrong. It seems not to be a problem with many literals in a
method, but something else.

When I input the file in a Topaz shell (on windows), it works seamless and
the method can be called.


1.	Login to topaz
2.	enter ‘output push c:\image\bigMethod.log’[CR]
3.	enter ‘input c:\image\bigMethod.gs’[CR]
4.	all fine!


But if I do the same with a batch file which uses the script
loadBigMethod.tpz (attached),

The Topaz window opens, it stays there for about 10 seconds (the step 3
above took no time) and the crashes (Windows pops up with “the program does
not work anymore
” or something like that (I have a German version).


Any idea?

Could you send me the full topaz log file? We need that to understand what
might be going on ...

are there any information about implementation limits of Gemstone Smalltalk?


Concrete issue: 

I try to input a source file (2.1. MB – can this work?). 

Topaz dies (Windows reports that Topaz is not working anymore

Last thing in the log file is a method with 743 literals – is this an issue?

My naïve theory: Gemstone (Topaz?) cannot compile the method, but dies
without error.


Any ideas?
