[NREPL-22] CLONE - set stack size for Android Created: 30/Jun/12 Updated: 24/Jul/12 Resolved: 24/Jul/12
If you want to use nREPL on Android (currently only possible with sattvik's fork of Clojure) then you need bigger stack sizes than Android's default 8k to eval even moderately complex expressions. For comparison: A regular JVM on a PC has default stack sizes around 256k ... 512k depending on platform.
In nrepl.clj, modify
(doto (Thread. r)
(doto (Thread. (.getThreadGroup (Thread/currentThread)) r "nREPL" 524288) ; 512k generous stack size
Note: There are warnings here http://bit.ly/u86tF1 about choosing a good stack size but since in practice nREPL seems to have <10 threads running with 1 active client connection we can be generous here.
The more advanced version would be to make this somehow configurable but that'd probably be over-engineering things.

I understand that after a brief detour via agents we're now back to creating our own threads in nREPL. So the above applies gain. Apparently in JIRA you can't reopen issues so I'm 'cloning' this one.
