Don't do that!  If you do, you won't find any error and you're likely to
screw up your TeX.

Please listen to what others have tried to tell you, and try to find out
where your error is.

It is not TeX's fault, for sure!  Although one might blame it for obscure
error messages dating back to the dark ages of mainframes, VaXen etc...

Good luck - Bon chance!

Hi Robert,

Every time I've seen that message, it's been caused by an error on my
part, not a document that was too big or anything like that.

I solve these in about 10 minutes as follows:

* Back up the original document.
* Keep dividing by half the remaining doc until the problem goes away
* Keep adding parts until it comes back
* Repeat last two steps til you find the paragraph causing the error
* Remove all of the document except the bad paragraph
* Keep dividing the paragraph in half until the problem goes away, or
  until a 1 word paragraph still causes the problem

After narrowing it down that finely, the root cause should be obvious,
and you can fix it. Keep in mind if you get it down to one word and
that word has no environment or character style associated with it,
the problem is probably in the document preamble or the layout file (if
you have one).

In general, once you have a tiny document in which you can at will
toggle the symptom, you've pretty much pinpointed the root cause.

This sounds like a big hassle, it's usually the quickest way to find
the problem. And what I like about it is I don't have to know anything
about LyX or LaTeX. And if I *still* can't figure it out, I can email
the tiny document to the LyX people and they'll know instantly what's
wrong.

I am willing to bet that you did not really exceed the TeX capacity.  
What probably happened was that you included, accidentally, a more

I would see these if I stayed within a subheading environment and then 
wrote a displayed equation.
The best way to find this sort of error is to cut up your file (delete

Let me try to explain it this way. If you were to run the following
Python program (call it forkbomb.py):

===
#!/usr/bin/python

def fork(number):
print number
#   if number  100:
#   return
fork(number+1)


fork(1)
===

You get the following error message:

RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

Does that mean you should increase Python's recursion depth? No way.
You could increase it to a million, and it would simply take the
program another second or so to bomb. The recursion depth error is
caused by the program being bad -- specifically that it has nothing to
tell it when to quit recursing (because those two lines are commented
out). I'd go ten to one that this is similar to what is happening in
your document -- something in your document is getting run over and
over again until TeX breaks, and that's happening because there's
something wrong with your program.

But I could be wrong. So test my hypothesis like this. Make a LyX
document, with no fonts or styles or document preamble or layout file,
that is 50 times the size of the document that's bombing.

Using LyX and Vim, I just created a 31MB LyX file. It took about 10
seconds to load it, and about 1.5 minutes to compile it. It's 9140
pages long, full of text. No error message about TeX capacity.

You have EPS figures that individually exceed 30MB???  Yikes!!  I assume

them out; they won't (at least, shouldn't) be used when generating PDF 
output.  Don't know if they would cause LaTeX to run out of memory, though.

If that's not the source of the memory problem, you might try a 
divide-and-conquer approach.  Chop out pieces of the thesis until you 
get something that compiles, then put things back until you either 
identify a maximum amount of the document that compiles or identify one 
particular piece that's at fault (meaning the entire document minus that 
piece compiles, and that piece by itself does not).  If it's the latter 
case, use divide-and-conquer within just that piece to find the culprit.

You have EPS figures that individually exceed 30MB???  Yikes!!  I assume 
the bulk of these are bitmaps?  If the bitmaps are previews (see, for 
instance, http://bourbon.usc.edu/tgif/faq/importeps.html), I would chop 
them out; they won't (at least, shouldn't) be used when generating PDF 
output.  Don't know if they would cause LaTeX to run out of memory, though.

If that's not the source of the memory problem, you might try a 
divide-and-conquer approach.  Chop out pieces of the thesis until you 
get something that compiles, then put things back until you either 
identify a maximum amount of the document that compiles or identify one 
particular piece that's at fault (meaning the entire document minus that 
piece compiles, and that piece by itself does not).  If it's the latter 
case, use divide-and-conquer within just that piece to find the culprit.

RE: Tex capacity exceeded

2008-05-07 Thread Adrian Peter
Turned out the error was being caused by having single quotes in math
equations.  I was using them to indicate derivatives.  I changed them to
\prime and everything worked!  Also it didn't like it if I placed a single
quote inside a \mbox within a math equation.  Anyone know why this is?
Thanks.

Paul's suggestion is certainly worthy of a try. However, sometimes the problem

When I was finishing up my thesis, I ran into various TeX capacity problems, 
none of which would occur when each chapter (appendix, etc.) was compiled 
separately, nor when all but one were put together. It didn't matter which I 
removed, the result would compile, but all together wouldn't. Taking out the 
TOC, too, fixed things, or the bibliography, or the index.
   I ended up concluding that I was running into some problem with the sum of

Change the input stack size by editing your texmf.cnf file. Mine is in 
/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf, but yours might be different. Look in that file 
for the line that says:
stack_size=300

and change it to something bigger ( I don't know how much! ).
The wizardry bit is that you have to run `fmtutil -all' to update your 
TeX installation to use the new stack_size.

Incidentally, my Debian distribution says I'm not allowed to edit 
texmf.cnf directly, I have to edit stack_size in the file 
/etc/texmf/texmf.d/95NonPath/ and then run update-texmf before I run 
fmtutil.

Re: TeX capacity exceeded

2002-05-30 Thread James Vernon

I'm no wizard, but this worked for me in a similar situation, so fingers 
crossed it might work for you too

Change the input stack size by editing your texmf.cnf file. Mine is in 
/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf, but yours might be different. Look in that file 
for the line that says:
stack_size=300

and change it to something bigger ( I don't know how much! ).
The wizardry bit is that you have to run `fmtutil -all' to update your 
TeX installation to use the new stack_size.

Incidentally, my Debian distribution says I'm not allowed to edit 
texmf.cnf directly, I have to edit stack_size in the file 
/etc/texmf/texmf.d/95NonPath/ and then run update-texmf before I run 
fmtutil.

Jean-Marc,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Here is what I have done. I have one very large table. 
I wanted to place it in one table float. But when I 
check long table (to cause it to break across pages), 
it never splits across pages. So instead I made 8 
separate tables by hand. After doing this, when I tried 
to create a Postscript view, I only got two pages 
instead of 18 pages. Then I looked at the log to see 
what was happening. So now I've broken the document 
into three parts which is OK but not ideal.

I hope that if I don't use the table float, the table 
will break across pages.

Jean-Marc,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Here is what I have done. I have one very large table. 
I wanted to place it in one table float. But when I 
check long table (to cause it to break across pages), 
it never splits across pages. So instead I made 8 
separate tables by hand. After doing this, when I tried 
to create a Postscript view, I only got two pages 
instead of 18 pages. Then I looked at the log to see 
what was happening. So now I've broken the document 
into three parts which is OK but not ideal.

I hope that if I don't use the table float, the table 
will break across pages.

I think it will, although I do not have much experience with tables.
