Description Andrei Gaponenko 2003-03-22 04:18:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
Info documentation coming with the binutils package describes
`--stack RESERVE' and `--stack RESERVE,COMMIT' options of ld.
However the linker does not recognize them. What's the way to 
request a bigger stack size? 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/bin/ld --stack 10000000 ttt.o -o ttt

Actual Results:  /usr/bin/ld: unrecognized option '--stack'
/usr/bin/ld: use the --help option for usage information

Expected Results:  producing an executable with the requested stack size.

Additional info:

The same applies to binutils- (RH 6.1), and 
probably to at least all versions in between.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2003-03-22 04:27:32 EST
--stack is an PE and BeOS option only. On linux, you control the stack size
with ulimit -s (unless you use the /lib/libpthread.so.0 (not /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0)
linuxthreads implementation, which requires at most 2MB stacks).
Comment 2 Andrei Gaponenko 2003-03-22 04:34:44 EST
Thanks for the explanation.  
Then the --stack option should be described in the "machine dependent features"
section, not in "invocation|options" of the texinfo manual.
