I think that the problem is not related to a particular platform. I am
using a PC under linux with 512M and I can't allocate a global stack
greater than around 60M.

I remember someone proposed a patch for that, but I can not find it
anymore. Is it working? Could someone repost it please?

More generally, can someone explain why gprolog is limited in such a
way? Maybe, it could be useful to include in the documentation the
current gprolog's limitations.

But Daniel said he was working on a new memory management framework,
with garbage collection. Maybe that will lift the current restriction?

By the way an auto-expandable stack would be very nice ;). Is it so

Thanks in advance for any information,
Best regards,
