-largemodel compilation flag

Hi Everyone,

Go has a compilation flag:

-largemodel
generate code that assumes a large memory model

Looking at the docs, I see no explanation whatsoever about this – what does it do exactly ?
Does anyone have a clue ?

Yours,
Guy.

A quick search through the source on github shows that the flag is currently only present in the documentation.

In some older forks it was read using the flags package and set to true is goos was nacl. Except from those two references I can’t seem to find anything about it.
