MCL's stack size defaults to 5% of the memory allocated to it with
a minimum of 100K and a maximum of 400K. You can change these defaults
either with ResEdit or parameters to SAVE-APPLICATION. The stack space
is allocated at startup does not change during a single run of an
MCL based application.

I know nothing about the limitations of Allegro CL/PC. Ask Franz, Inc.
