                       MSC: void *alloca( size_t size )

       - prototype in malloc.h

       - allocates size bytes for the application stack
       - memory is automatically freed upon exiting the calling function
       - this function cannot be used as a parameter to another function
         or stack corruption will occur
       - the pointer returned CANNOT be passed as an argument to free()
         since it isn't allocated from DOS
       - see   stackavail
