There is a critical bug in scipy, about *very* basic operations between
under MS Windows. Here's the facts :
a=scipy.arange( N, typecode='F' )
crashes with N = 258168. The same code does not crash for N = 258167. So
258168 is a
kind of limit, because for any lower value, it is OK. This is no memory
problem (258168 is
not a big value and I have 512 Mb RAM !-). Moreover, if I change scipy
for Numeric, the problem disappears !
Also, the interpreter crashes with no error message at all, as if some
'exit()' code was
What's going on ? How to solve this ?
To me it is a very important bug. We can deal on this list about the
color of graphics or
about some weird special function... but here we're dealing about the
integrity of simple
Could the readers of this mail try the code on their windows box and
tell me if they
can reproduce the bug. Any idea to overcome this problem, or just a hint
is welcome, because
I'm completely stuck !!!!!
Thanks in advance,
