If you are running many programs that patch system functions (such as
commodities and hacks) it might happen that sometimes your machine
crashes without real "motivation". This is often caused by a too low
stack of many programs (because of the patched routines increasing the
stack usage of the corresponding system function).

StackAttack tries to kill these GURUs by patching CreateProc(), CreateNew-
Proc(), RunCommand() and SystemTagList(). It alters the stack passed to
these routines depending on what parameters you supply to StackAttack.

StackAttack allows you to set a minimum stack size a new process (program)
shall have and also by how much bytes you want to increase the stack further


NOTES:
======

o StackAttack only eats some hundred bytes!


CHANGES IN V 1.3:
=================

o Fixed my email address, which was not vaild anymore since many years

o StackAttack itself does not contain any updates. I just decided to
  re-upload it, because StackAttack was removed from Aminet some time
  ago, after someone had uploaded a trojan infected version.

                     *** StackAttack is FREEWARE ***
