Q25321: Using EXEHDR or EXEMOD to Change the Stack Size of an .EXE
Article: Q25321 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 2.01 | 1.00 2.01 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | s_exehdr s_exemod | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 6-FEB-1991 The EXEHDR and EXEMOD utilities can be used to change the stack size of a program. EXEHDR runs in both DOS and OS/2, while EXEMOD is an older utility that only runs under DOS. To view the current size of the stack, no options are used. Both EXEHDR and EXEMOD will produce a table of information with a line such as the following: Initial SS:SP 0000:0800 0 The offset portion of this line gives the current stack size in hex. In this example, the stack size is set at 2K. If you wanted to change it to 4K, you could use the /STACK option of EXEHDR or EXEMOD in the following way: EXEHDR file /STACK 1000 -or- EXEMOD file /STACK 1000
