 In Turbo C, Turbo C++, and Borland C++, you may not find "stack size" in
 the index but the global variable _stklen should be there. The manual
 will instruct you to put a statement like

   extern unsigned _stklen = 54321U;

 in your code, outside of any function. You must assign the value right
 in the extern statement; it won't work to assign a value at run time.
 The linker may give you a duplicate symbol warning, which you can
 ignore.

 If you are using the Borland PowerPack for DOS _stklen does not change
 the stack size. To change the stack size you must use STACKSIZE in your
 .DEF file. HEAPSIZE can be used to change the size of your program's
 heap.
