Re: How big should I make my stack

Started by Richard Duits November 29, 2007
If you use Keil with the RealView compiler than you can lookup how much
stack a function uses in one of the output files. If you lookup the
stack usage of the main function you know how much stack you app needs.
I don't know exactly which file because I'm home now and I don't have
the Keil MDK installed at home.

Richard.
