But do note that on OS9 and lower the default is to use dynamic memory
allocation, so stacks are not loaded into application memory but into
system memory. Therefore, increasing the application memory partition
actually reduces the amount of memory available to your application. In
fact a 15MB application partition is usually much larger than necessary.
I was very perplexed by this when I found it out, so this arcane fact is
now permanently burned into my brain. :-)
