Too often, compilation leads to an error: "Access violation:
The instruction at address 100181b6 attempted to read from location 00000000."
This happens when I dimension an array for (150) or greater. (125) works. So far, this happens with COMPLEX, INTEGER or REAL. Here is an example, furnished by Silverfrost under FTN95 Examples\Clearwin, and edited to spare bandwidth. This example dimensions Yarr1 as (1000).

Is there a workaround, other than using smaller arrays? I'd hate to think this freebie is limited to such small arrays.

Your post is really more appropriate to the Clearwin+ forum Topic, but never mind it's here now.
I had no problem running your code above, obtaining this ...
you really should be usign the 'new' 'native' %pl, implementing like this ...
Code:  i=winio@('%mn[&Help[About]]&',about_box_cb)
call winop@('%pl[native]')
i=winio@('%pv&')
i=winio@('%pl[x_axis="Time(Miliseconds)",y_axis=Amplitude,'&
!//'title="Sample plot",colour=red]&',&
//'title="Sample plot",colour=red]',&
400,300,narr,0.0d0,1.0d0,yarr1)
!i=winio@('%pv')
end

I've corrected the position of the %pv also so the window resizes under user control.
This code gets the following ...

as you can see there are currently some advantages but some disadvantages between the 2 methods.
native %pl is still under development and some bugs being corrected and some enhancements under consideration for future implementation.
You'd have to go through the x3 posts entitled 'Native %pl' to follow the development over the past year.
The current status is promising but there's still a way to go to get to robustness imo.

There may be an internal ClearWin+ limit when using the original interface to SIMPLEPLOT (i.e. %pl without [native]). As John says, the remedy may be to try using [native] assuming you have a recent version of ClearWin+.

There is no problem with much larger arrays with older SIMPLEPLOT method, the problem is that it does not like values less then 1e22 (or 1e30) or more then 1e22 as i remember, it simply crashes or plots nothing. Often very small numbers are not important, so if the numbers are smaller then 1e22 just keep them 1e22. But better switch to native PL, the more people polish it with their back the better compiler

This compilation access error is NOT limited to SIMPLEPLOT or CLEARWIN or %pl. I will try to furnish another example which does not involve plotting.
Thank you for your responses, John, Paul and Dan. I am now looking into plotting and have questions about the 4 or so different methods. You've provided useful information. As noted above, this error is not just with %pl or plotting.

Here is one of the first programs I wrote which, when compiled, generated the same access error:

Note that this has nothing to do with %pl or plotting.
I think it’s a defective compiler. The error occurs whenever an array is dimensioned as over (250). It does not occur in this example if I dimension z3 as (125). Ditto for yarr1 in the original example.

What are ?
USE CLRWIN$
zthree(z1, z2, c) !Generate the next
I can not get your program to run at all.

CLRWIN$ is not used.
zthree is missing.

Guessed zthree and modified code for >250.
My changes were to make it easier to test.
Can't see how 250 is the issue, unless you did not change dimension.
