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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
