set scilab stack size

Calling Sequence




integer, the required stack size given in number of double precision words


2-vector [total used]


Scilab stores "usual" variables in a stack stk (for global variables see gstacksize).

stacksize(n) allows the user to increase or decrease the size of this stack. The maximum allowed size depends on the amount of free memory and swap space available at the time.

stacksize('max') allows the user to increase the size of this stack to the maximum.

stacksize('min') allows the user to decrease the size of this stack to the minimum.

This function with the n argument can now be used everywhere.

sz=stacksize() returns a 2-vector which contains the current total and used stack size.

On 64 bit platforms, maximum size of the stack is limited to 268435454.
