Subject: Stack size on OS X

Hello,

It seems that the problem of stack size is still not solved in OS X (limited to 8Mo by default and
hard limit in the kernel to 64Mo with ulimit -s 64000). My unison is still crashing on
very big changes ...

However, I stumbled on this pdf

http://www.google.fr/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAcQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fhomepage.mac.com%2Feric.c%2Fhpc%2Fcontents%2Fdocumentation%2FHow%2520to%2520increase%2520the%2520stack%2520size%2520on%2520Mac%2520OS%2520X.pdf&ei=v-MTS4aMG4Wj_AbFmok2&usg=AFQjCNH1qCjydtM1doAdtwtTJxaEAmwLSw&sig2=u9faAiBSuB7v-VzvHDPHRA)

(This is the first hit on google with "increasing stack size on OS X")

which explain how to use -stack-addr and -stack-size in the gnu linker to change the stack address
and size.

Did anyone try this on OS X for OCaml program ?

I think stack limitation, for a functional program is not good and it is even worse when the limit
depends upon the platform.

Cheers,
Christophe
