set/get scilab global stack size

Calling Sequence




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


2-vector [total used]


Scilab stores gobal variables in a stack

gstacksize(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. Note that Scilab can increase automatically the global stacksize when needed

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

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

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