C++ Memory Requirements for PowerQUICC 1

It depends on your program and C++ code. You probably mention C++
because of templates. If you use a lot of different types (classes) and
a lot of templates will be instantiated for your types, which can
quickly increase
the size of your program(s) (not much unlike to macros in C).
In addition, if you abstract 'the bit' with class hierarchies, stream
io, etc.
instead of using builtin types like 'int' you can create big programs.
