How to Fix Stack Overflow at Line 0

A stack is a section of memory where a program stores its variables, calculations, option states and program parameters. When started, a program is allocated some memory to use for the stack; a stack overflow happens when a program exceeds its allocation. The offending program may attempt to write into adjacent memory sections, causing conflicts with other programs. Stack overflows are common with Java, C++, Perl and other runtime environments, which assist in running programs. A stack overflow at line 0 indicates that the offending program tripped up from the start; however, stack overflows can occur on any line number.
