|*** the PARI stack overflows !!!|
The version of gp in use here may be an old one (not sure) so maybe this problem no longer exists. My problem is this: If I run a gp program from a file and the PARI stack overflows gp doubles the stack size but then quits, unless I have another copy of the program following the first (and if the stack overflows several times I need several copies of the program in succession, one for each time the stack overflows). I know one way around this is to allocate a lot of memory but usually I do not know how big the job will get so I do not like this, particularly as there are other users on the system. Is there a way to get gp to go back to the beginning of a program and start over again, once it has doubled the stack size, rather than just quitting, if there is not a new copy of the program to start on.
