An example of a limit-point compact topological space that it is not compact: Let $\mathbf{X}=\mathbb{Z}$ and define $\mathbf{B}_n=\{2n-1,2n\}$ for each n. Obviously the collection of all $\mathbf{B}_n$ is a basis for a topology on $\mathbf{X}$. Notice that with this topology $\mathbf{X}$ is not compact: the same family of all $\mathbf{B}_n$ is an open cover of $\mathbf{X}$ with no finite subcover. But $\mathbf{X}$ is limit-point compact: suppose that $\mathbf{A}$ is an infinite subset of $\mathbf{X}$ and $a\in \mathbf{A}$. Define x = 2n − 1 if a is even, and x = 2n if a is odd. Then every open set that contains x also contains a, so x is an accumulation point of $\mathbf{A}$.
