what is this error SIGXFSZ

error SIGXFSZ

The output file is of fixed size. When your program prints beyond this limit, You get this error.

this question is already asked here http://discuss.codechef.com/questions/19714/sigxfsz-runtime-error

consider this example:

  1. value set 1, 2,3
  2. we want to subsequently output each value in our set until we reach 3
  3. one way to accomplish this task is by using an input and output stream to like so,

while (numSeq != 4) { // current value: 1
cout<<numSeq<<"\n";
cin>>numSeq; //(this line)
}
//if you don’t include an input stream(this line) or a way to reaccess our value set/value source(by default, our keyboard) inside your while loop your program will crash because we will never get to 4 since the next value (2) will never get pushed or inserted into our cout stream or destination(computer screen) when the program loops again and the condition will always be true.
//so the program will output 111111111111111111111111…output file size exceeded! and you will get a Runtime Error

note: keyboard and computer screen are included to give you a better understanding of input/output streams.

I hope this helps.

best of luck.
