Question Title How do I resolve "Error writing file: too many constants" error?

This error means that too many Java constants were created and the program cannot be compiled.

This error is usually returned when compiling very huge source files.

To avoid it, add -big option to the Compiler options. Use -big only for programs that return this error.

Other programs may experience performance slowdown if compiled with -big option.
