In addition to Mark's very helpful address space layout, you may want to
consult this web page:
"The maximum size of an array that can be created by Intel® IA-32
compilers is 2 GB."
due to the fact that:
"The default Linux* kernel on IA-32 loads shared libraries at 1 GB,
which limits the contiguous address space available to your program. You
will get a load time error if your program + static data exceed this."
Intel offers several helpful hints on being able to declare larger
arrays (e.g. -static linking, etc.).
