Re: [patch/rfc/testsuite] Test GDB on not-so-little core files
Hmm, can you think of an efficient way of soaking up most of the stack
...? :-) On GNU/Linux, alloca() proved to be useless :-(
The best you're likely to get is recursively calling a function with a,
say, 4K frame.
That would unfortunatly defeat the current technique of creating a very
large but very sparse core file. I'll see what I can cook up.
