[Haskell-cafe] Compilation of large data

So -O0 didn't help.

Nevertheless, ghc suggests to read it from file :-)

ghc: sorry! (unimplemented feature or known bug)
  (GHC version 8.6.3 for x86_64-unknown-linux):
         Trying to allocate more than 129024 bytes.

This is currently not possible due to a limitation of GHC's code generator.
See http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4505 for details.
Suggestion: read data from a file instead of having large static data
structures in code.

It seems that splitting the list into several modules (several thousands of elements 
per list are OK) works. Moreover, as it is generated, several modules can be 
generated too. And even more, efficiency is not affected (the same execution time 
and -O2 used for all modules).

Regards (and over :-))
