there are some important davantages!
1. allocation speed: stack allocation is incredibly faster than heap allocation
2. no memory fragmentation. due to the nature of the stack, the memory cannot
you can try to increase the stack reserved for a program. this can be done by
custom compiler flags and settings.
for visual studio:
"I would not use /F <num> as it only works if you compile and link in one step
(which is rare) - instead I would look at the linker /stack option.
