Actually I have one thats been puzzling me. I think I already know the answer, but I have no definitive way to test it.

Right now I am coding this huge callback function which requires at least (so far) 16 DWords and 4 Structs of various sizes. Is there ever a point when I should be looking at this code and decide to move everything to say one global allocation? My concern is mainly speed. And while I do know that accessing a global variable will probably to slower than accessing locals, I dont know if I will eventually reach a point where it takes longer to set up all the locals than it would to access the global...

Any ideas?

Hi Graebel

If your locals grows bigger than the stack size you're in trouble.
Accessing locals are slower (I think) than accessing globals.
