    error c1060 - compiler out of heap space

    i'm hitting this problem and i don't quite know why. cl seems to be peaking at around 100M; and i've used /zm2000 to increase the limit to 1G

    anyone have experience with rearranging project files & such to help this? i really don't want to have to untemplatize all my code and write separate classes for all these things :|

    What compiler/version?

    Just how big are your source files?

    This smacks of you have a single project.cpp which #includes ALL your source files.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    yes, that is the basic problem. there is one place where a lot of templated code all has to come together. the source files themselves are relatively small - ~250 lines at most.

    this is not a problem for the backend of my application - i can instantiate all these objects just fine there. but when i try to additionally create the qt widgets that use those backend objects, i get c1060.

    looks like it was a covariant return type of a virtual function in a templatized factory object when i fed it a templatized object!
