Limit on Integer 2-dimensional arrays?

http://www.daniweb.com – I was trying out a 2-dimensional integer array on a UNIX box. I hit up a 'Segmentation Fault' on trying to run it. #include <iostream> #include <cstdlib> using namespace std; int main() {         int matrix[2000][2000];         int i, j;         srand ( 1 );         for (i=0; i<2000; i++) {                 for (j=0; j<2000; j++) {                 matrix[i][j] = rand() %1000;                 }         }         return 0; } But If I use an array of 10x10, everything seems to work properly. I was thinking of this : 'Did I hit up on the limit of the integer array?' Do I need to use some other datatype? Uh, double/long/something of this sort ? I need to replicate a 2000x2000 matrix...
