In tcl/win/makefile.in in gdb CVS src there is following at line 475:
$(TCLSH): $(TCLSHOBJS) tclshres.$(OBJEXT) $(TCLLIB)
$(CC) $(linkdebug) $(conlflags) -Wl,--stack=0x2300000 \
-o $@ $(conlibsdll) $(TCLSHOBJS) tclshres.$(OBJEXT) $(TCLLIB)
The stacksize is inconsistent with that used in makefile.vc which is 2300000
*but* vc uses decimal notation (unless prefixed with 0x). It is also
inconsistent with that used in makefile.bc (1f0001), which presumably uses hex
When building and testing tcl8.3.3 under mingw I ran into similar problem
(using Mumit's diff for 8.3). The socket.test would hang with stack=0x2300000
but worked fine when I changed stacksize to something more reasonable (for my
machine at least) ie. 0x231860.
And that triggers a question which I will raise also in binutils list:
Why is default reserved stacksize set so high (0x02000000) by ld in pe.em?
PS I would report this to tcl also, but new logon registrations are disabled
during their move to new host.
