In the uClibc++ library, there are a number of places where I am currently

point in an embedded system is it safe to use stack allocation instead? I'd
be able to elliminate the need for a pointer variable, cut out the calls to
malloc/free and all of the internal maintainance which goes along with that.
However, I'm not certain how well embedded systems handle growth on the
Thanks for the advice.
