I am compiling a large D program. It used to compile normally and execute all
the unittests properly.

But now, its compiling normally, but unittests crashing with "Stack Overflow"
error. I am sure there are no recursions. Could anyone please tell me what could
be the reason ? and how can I increase stack size ? 

Thank you

Last time I got one of these in D was in/out contracts calling each other i.e. byte[] decode(byte[] data) out (result) { .. compare decode(result) with data .. } body { ..etc.. } byte[] decode(byte[] data) out (result) { .. compare encode(result) with data .. } body { ..etc.. } in other words the 'out' block of 'encode' calls decode, the 'out' block of decide calls encode, the 'out' block of encode .. do you have any of these?

There is almost surely a recursion of some sort happening. If you compile with -g and run it under the debugger, when the stack overflow happens take a look at the call stack. It should tell you what is recursing.
