I've been reading Aleph One's paper on Smashing the Stack for Fun and Profit. I wrote down example1.c from his paper, modified it a bit to see what the stack looks like on my system. I'm running ...
Suppose I am using a very heavy applications(or you can say that it is a very bad code which keeps on allocating memory on heap and won't free it and also uses recursion) Now after some point of time ...
Every single time there's a discussion about a new programming language targetting the JVM, there are inevitably people saying things like: "The JVM doesn't support tail-call optimization, so I ...
I used to think that it's not, but yesterday I had to do it. It's an application that uses Akka (an actor system implementation for the JVM) to process asynchronous jobs. One of the actors performs ...
So as a general rule to avoid a stack overflow, big objects should be allocated to the heap (correct me if I am wrong). But, since the heap and the stack expand towards each other, wouldn't this cause ...
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. ...
I have some experience writing small tools in Haskell and I find it very intuitive to use, especially for writing filters (using interact) that process their standard input and pipe it to standard ...
