Internet Explorer has no problem creating an array of 65,536 elements.
However, IE does have a problem eval-ing an array of 65,536 elements.
The code produces an out of memory error on the eval statement. The limit for eval appears to be 65,535 – a number that harkens back to the dark, dismal days of programming in a segmented memory architecture.
Of course, if you came here looking for the upper limits of eval – you might be doing something wrong!
