[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

I see, the default stack max size makes it take a very long time
before it runs out of stack space. Once I reduced the maximum stack
size to a lower value I got the stack overflow error.

I still prefer having an error message which indicates that __call
looped too many times.
