1024x1024 - also notice the while loop - why don't you try to compile
the thing and run it to see what happens.

I compiled with VC 6.0 and ran the program under NT 4.0. It returned null
memory was exhausted. I tried a similar program under linux a while ago
and got a similar result.  I'm not sure if you can set the page file to
unlimited. I guess you can set it to more than the free space on the hard
disk but
I don't think the system will let you.
