NAME
       nostk - allow process to manage its own stack (2BSD)

SYNOPSYS
       nostk();

DESCRIPTION
       Nostk  informs  the  system  that  the process wishes to manage its own stack.  The system
       releases the stack segment(s) it has reserved, making them available for  allocation  (via
       brk(2)) by the user.

       C  programs  should  use nostk only with great caution and understanding of the C language
       calling and stack conventions.  It is most useful for assembler programs that want to  use
       the entire available address space.

SEE ALSO
       stack(5)

BUGS
       Nostk is unique to the PDP-11 and 2BSD; its use is discouraged.
