Hi pdftex team,
I have encountered the problem with the stack_size parameter. Enlarging
a complex context document results in the error
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [parameter stack size=6000].
Since a compilation of individual document parts is OK I do not believe
in the recurse problem.
Interesting is that texmf.cnf sets (TL 07):
stack_size = 5000
stack_size.context = 10000
so I was curious why pdftex (tested on 1.40.5 and the current 1.40.8) is
writting about 6000. It seems to me it simply cuts down the number
greater then 6000.
- Is the 6000 a real limit?
- If so then context setting to 10000 is useless.
- If not can it be increased a bit? Let us say to 10000?
Thanks
Vit Zyka
