how much memory does node allocate for null values in arrays
Following up on this thread:
Lots of Null Values in an array mean any harm?
I did this with node.js:
arr= arr=1 arr=2 arr.sort()
And I got
FATAL ERROR: JS Allocation failed - process out of memory
So that leaves me with the question (I couldn't find it on Yahoogle) how much Memory is actually allocated for a null entry in an array in node. I do not plan to use 1000000000 entries, not even close, but maybe it's still not worth allocating the memory...
Who knows how I can check?
So in summary, node.js does not allocate memory for undefined values in an array. The crash I experienced must have been a glitch as no one else could reproduce it and installing the latest node.js version eliminated the problem for me as well.
