[erlang-questions] Internal compiler atoms

I am trying to compile a
​(​
big
​)​
module from a list of forms
​​
, but it seems
​ like the compiler internally generates lots of new atoms:​


no more index entries in atom_tab (max=1048576)

Crash dump is being written to: erl_crash.dump...

​In this case the compiler itself generated ​more than 300K atoms while
compiling my forms.
​
​Why is the atoms generated?​

​Is this anything that can be disabled?​
