RE: Fault addres from sigcontext



The stack grows automatically one page at a time. The maximum
stack/head is much more than the available amount of memory in
the system. The maximum stack size is something like 0x60000000
(or some other terrible large number).

Thank you. 

One more question: What would be the default stack size? I mean: Is
there any limit for the maximum stack (heap) size?
