Solution or Workaround
This error occurs while using SHAPEARC to convert a shapefile to a coverage:
LIST SPACE EXHAUSTED [SEGLNK]
Most likely you are using the inappropriate fuzzy tolerance.
1. Click File > Command Mode and type the following:
This will return information about the shapefile, in particular the X & Y maximums and minimums.
2. Calculate the difference between each pair of maximums and minimums (Xmax - Xmin = Xdifference, Ymax - Ymin = Ydifference).
3. To determine the appropriate fuzzy tolerance, multiply the larger difference by 1/10000. Example:
Xmax - Xmin = [5000 - 2000] = 3000
Ymax - Ymin = [9500 - 7000] = 1500
3000 * [1/10000] = .3 = FUZZY Tolerance
4. Run the SHAPEARC command with this fuzzy tolerance value.
