Attention: This TeX is generated by web2js Jim Fowler's WEB/TeX Pascal to WebAssembly compiler.

This is a follow-up question to Is it possible to output a WEB constant with a TeX (or WEB) command?.

I get this error in lplain.log when I try to dump the lplain format.

This is TeX, Version 3.14159265 (INITEX)  4 JUL 1776 12:00
**lplain.tex \dump
(lplain.tex Preloading the plain format: codes, registers,!

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.

But the pool_size constant is set to 350000 (default value: 32000).

Here's my used tex.sys (no use of tex.ch):

    My impression is that your attempt to compile TeX didn't go very well: July 4, 1776 is not the current date. – egreg Aug 2 '19 at 8:56
  • @egreg According to ShreevatsaR 4 Jul 1776 12:00 is just a default that Knuth left in tex.web for system-dependent changes to replace with a function for getting current date and time. I will report this issue to Jim Fowler's git web2js. – CarpeDiemKopi Aug 2 '19 at 9:00
  • tex.ch sets some other pool related values, but to be honest I don't immediately see where they are used @!inf_pool_size = 32000; @!sup_pool_size = 40000000; @!inf_pool_free = 1000; @!sup_pool_free = sup_pool_size; @!inf_string_vacancies = 8000; @!sup_string_vacancies = sup_pool_size - 23000; @!sup_hash_extra = sup_max_strings; @!inf_hash_extra = 0; – David Carlisle Aug 2 '19 at 9:07

I was successful with the following TeX_big.sys:

With a lplaint.tex format i.e. LaTeX 2.09 the TeX_big system uses approx. 350 pages of memory i.e. approx. 1.4 MB of memory.
