in reply to Use more threads.

[renodino] has been unable to find a binary edit utility for the Linux platform.

For setting stacksize, you need the API function setrlimit(2); the manpage refers you also to the bash builtin 'ulimit' and quotactl(1).

Trying that locally against an example from What perl operations will consume C stack space?:

zen% ulimit -s 8192 zen% perl -wle '$n=shift; $_="a" x $n; /(ab*)+/' 10080 Segmentation fault (core dumped) zen% ulimit -s 32768 zen% perl -wle '$n=shift; $_="a" x $n; /(ab*)+/' 10080 zen% perl -wle '$n=shift; $_="a" x $n; /(ab*)+/' 32766 zen% perl -wle '$n=shift; $_="a" x $n; /(ab*)+/' 32767 Complex regular subexpression recursion limit (32766) exceeded at -e l +ine 1. zen%
.. which gets me to the builtin limit.

Note that the limit may be capped by root, and that more complex systems may use the quota-based accounting method; but any barriers are there to stop people increasing stack size, so they shouldn't cause a problem for your requirements here.
