simple program crash (GHC 5.02, Hugs)
Fri, 21 Dec 2001 16:22:42 -0600
I'm a newbie in Haskell.
I tryed to compare performance of GHC compiled code and Ocaml compiled code
on a small example:
test n cosx
| n==0 = cosx
| otherwise = test (n-1) (cosx+cos(cosx))
main = print ( test 10000000 0.0 )
I compiled it on Win NT :
ghc -o test_haskell.exe test_haskell.hs
When I run the program I got the following message:
Stack space overflow: current size 1048576 bytes.
Use `+RTS -Ksize' to increase it.
Hugs 98 (December 2001) version just fails with "Application Error" message.
Does a stack usage depends on number of recursive calls? Is there a tail
In Ocaml version of this program everything goes well.
The program produced the result without any complains.
