/* this comes from the `reuse' library. copy any changes back to the source.

these stack allocation functions are a replacement for alloca(), except that
they allocate memory from a separate pool.

advantages over alloca():
  - consecutive allocations are guaranteed to be contiguous with increasing
  - functions can allocate stack memory that is returned to the caller,
    in other words pushing and popping stack frames is optional.

disadvantages compared to alloca():
  - less portable
  - slightly slower, although still orders of magnitude faster than malloc().
  - longjmp() and exceptions do not deallocate stack memory (but who cares?).

just like alloca():
  - using too much stack memory does not fail gracefully, it fails with a

  int committed;  //   - bytes committed in allocated region

  // initialize the stack. `max_size' is the maximum size that the stack can
  // reach. on unix and windows a `virtual' memory block of this size is
  // mapped into the address space but does not actually consume physical
  // memory until it is referenced - so it is safe to set this to a high value.

  void init (int max_size);

  // destroy the stack. this unmaps any virtual memory that was allocated.

  void destroy();

  // allocate `size' bytes from the stack and return a pointer to the allocated

  // many times will result in a segfault.
