Back in the days of yore, when I did my C programming, I discovered alloca(). Used inside of functions, instead of malloc() (for example), it would free allocated memory when you left the function. I didn't look into the workings but I'd presume it used the stack for memory.


Update: Quick Search [^] and it's in C++, too - and it does use the stack for allocatons.
