BSD 2.11 - man page for nostk (bsd section 2)

NOSTK(2)					 System Calls Manual					     NOSTK(2)

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 seg- ment(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 con- ventions. It is most useful for assembler programs that want to use the entire available address space.
SEE ALSO

BUGS
Nostk is unique to the PDP-11 and 2BSD; its use is discouraged. 3rd Berkeley Distribution June 24, 1987 NOSTK(2)
