/F (Set Stack Size)

Sets the program stack size in bytes.

/F number

number

The stack size in bytes.

Without this option the stack size defaults to 1 MB. The number argument can be in decimal or C-language notation. The argument can range from 1 to the maximum stack size accepted by the linker. The linker rounds up the specified value to the nearest 4 bytes. The space between /F and numberis optional.

You may need to increase the stack size if your program gets stack-overflow messages.

You can also set the stack size by:

  • Using the /STACK linker option. For more information, see /STACK.

  • Using EDITBIN on the .exe file. For more information, see EDITBIN Reference.
