Quoted from MSDN about StackOverflowException:
The exception that is thrown when the execution stack overflows because it contains too many nested method calls.
Too many is pretty vague here. How do I know when too many is really too many? Thousands of function calls? Millions? I assume that it must be related in some way to the amount of memory in the computer but is it possible to come up with a roughly accurate order of magnitude?
I'm concerned about this because I am developping a project which involves a heavy use of recursive structures and recursive function calls. I don't want the application to fail when I start using it for more than just small tests.
