I am using Mathematica 4.0 on a pentium 2 866 MHZ 256 MB RAM, Windows 98
system. At the moment I have the following problem, there is a certain
algorithm that runs with success for small values of n. Actually it runs to
about n=90. However, when that subroutine is called withn n=100 mathematica
breaks completely, and gives a general error ("mathkernal has made a general
error" with in the details: -- in dutch -- "Mathkernel has made a stack
error in module MathDll.dll on ..." ). I've been struggling with this for
several weeks, and tried to program with as little memory as possible. But
still this error keeps occuring. Is there some simple remedy for it (e.g.
increasing the memory or stack space in some way?) Thank you for any help.

(If needed I could provide you with more details on the graph theoretical
algorithm that I'm investigating)
