Curious. This error suggests you have called ajMemCalloc with a request for an
array of zero (or negative) length.
I suspect you have exceeded the size of an integer. It does not look like a
floating point problem.
Macros that call ajMemCalloc include:
In each case, "nbytes" is the value that was not a positive integer.
In EMBOSS memory handling nbytes is of type ajlong. It may be you need to store
the database size in a larger integer datatype, or perhaps some automatic
conversion to int is happening.
Let me know if you need more clues.
