comment How do I increase the maximum swap space on Mac OS X?
Great idea! I had high hopes. Alas, they were dashed against the harsh shore of reality. The process was still killed by the kernel for large amounts of swapping, just as before ("low swap" console message), even though it was using a file I had created to use as virtual memory by mmap().

comment How do I increase the maximum swap space on Mac OS X?
As I noted in my question, that man page currently does not provide that option. It only provides -F to change the base name and location of the swapfiles.

comment How do I increase the maximum swap space on Mac OS X?
@richard Because the kernel message says "low swap". As to "adding lots of swap", no I haven't done that because I don't know how. That is precisely this question. How do I add swap space? Of course, the kernel adds swap space automatically, but only up to a limit. Hence the root of question: How do I increase the kernel's swap space limit?

@richard Yes, I know why malloc() does that. I was deflecting possible comments on someone thinking I'm not checking the return value of malloc(). By the way, my objective is not to fail earlier. My objective is to succeed.

I also posted this question on apple.stackexchange.com, but there has not been any response there.

comment How to extract only a specific folder from a zipped archive to a given directory?
I don't know what you mean by "akin to zip -r". If you're asking for a way to strip some of the path elements, but not all of the path elements in the names stored in the zip file, then no, unzip does not have a means to do that.

Use -j for that.

comment how to extract .z file from an old QNX in Centos
The output of what? The example file you gave is a complete and correct zlib stream.
