How can I control heap allocation for a process using Symbian C++
How can I control heap allocation for a process?
S60 3rd Edition (initial release)
My application fails to allocate memory after reserving a certain amount of memory from heap. What should I do to allocate more memory from heap?
The EPOCHEAPSIZE directive can be set in the .mmp file to reserve or constrict the amount of procurable heap available to the process during start-up and at run time.
epocheapsize minimum maximum
The minimum value (in bytes, rounded to the nearest 4K) ensures that the process does not start/run unless the device has the specified amount of free memory available.
The maximum value limits the amount of heap the process can consume.
