# Does stack limit in c is higher than stack limit in java?

 0 I was solving one problem on codechef and I used recursion, when I am submitted it's solution in c and it was a successful submission. But when I tried to do it in java I got NZEC error. does it mean c has higher stack limit for executing recursive calls than java. asked 24 Feb '16, 18:18 1★arpit728 683●17●65 accept rate: 10%

 0 This problem is faced by many coder/programmers. Stack limit as answered above is smaller and can be increased. For more detail visit This . answered 16 Jul '16, 13:05 4★atulag 106●2 accept rate: 12%
 0 Your Question should be treated as compiler and OS specific. The Standard (language) does'n mandate the min/max stack size and doesn't specifies the location of the stack memory. answered 31 Mar '16, 03:31 0★tara24 26●1 accept rate: 16%
 0 Yes Stack limit in Java is less than that of C. I also faced some problems initially. Anyways you can increase the stack limit in Java by using multi-threading. Create thread for each recursion which will have it own stack limit. Here is code snippet to create the thread new Thread(null, new Runnable() { public void run() { try { new ClassName().functionName(); } catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } catch (StackOverflowError e) { System.out.println("RTE"); } } }, "1", 1 << 26).start();  Write the above code snippet in main Function.

(24 Feb '16, 23:16) arpit7281★ No it doesn't compromise with the performance.You can view any of my recent submission. Here is other sample solution. (24 Feb '16, 23:31) Thanks @ankurverma1994 (25 Feb '16, 00:31) arpit7281★ If this answers your question then mark it as accepted and close the question. (25 Feb '16, 00:36) @ankurverma1994 Isn't there any limit to number of threads that can execute simultaneously?? (25 Feb '16, 08:53) arpit7281★ There is limit to create the number of threads. I don't know exactly how much. You can google it to learn more about it. The code snippet that I gave you, will not give StackOverflowError in Competitive Programming if your algorithm is correct.
