/Ge (Enable Stack Probes)

Activates stack probes for every function call that requires storage for local variables.


This mechanism is useful if you rewrite the functionality of the stack probe. It is recommended that you use /Gh (Enable _penter Hook Function) instead of rewriting the stack probe.

/Gs (Control Stack Checking Calls) has the same effect.

/Ge is deprecated in Visual C++ 2005; the compiler will generate stack checking. For more information, see Deprecated Compiler Options in Visual C++ 2005.
