— Memory overflow condition.
This condition is signaled when ECL exhausts the
ext:heap-size limit from Table 5.1. In handling this condition ECL follows
If the heap size limit was set to 0 (that is no limit), but there is some free space in the safety region ECL frees this space and issues a non-restartable error. The user may jump to an outer point or quit.
If the heap size had a finite limit, ECL offers the user
the chance to resize it, issuing a restartable condition. The user may at
this point use
(ext:set-limit 'ext:heap-size 0) to remove the
heap limit and avoid further messages, or use the
restart to let ECL enlarge the heap by some amount.
Independently of the heap size limit, if ECL finds that ther is no space to free or to grow, ECL simply quits. There will be no chance to do some cleanup because there is no way to cons any additional data.
