  • A clarification for .limit stack size

    Posted by Jingling Xue Friday 12 April 2024, 01:35:36 PM, last modified Friday 12 April 2024, 01:41:07 PM.

    Dear COMP3131/9102 Students,

    When translating a method in a VC program, your compiler will be required to generate a directive:

    `.limit stack XXX`

    Here, XXX indicates the size of the operand stack allocated by the JVM during the execution of the method.

    Given that our VC compilers might produce a range of code sequences without focusing on optimisation, the stack size you calculate may differ from that determined by our reference solution.

    This implies that you may select a different stack size as long as it meets the minimum requirements for your code sequence. Specifically, if the minimum required stack size for your code sequence is 10, any value for XXX less than 10 will cause your code to crash. On the other hand, setting XXX larger than 10 means your compiler is utilizing more memory than necessary. When marking this assignment, we will be lenient and not impose any penalties if XXX exceeds 10 by, for example, 1 or 2.
