O.K. that's wonderful. Now where is the up to date release of GCL?
When I go to what seems like the official GCL site

the latest release I get is 2.5.3. Same from ftp.gnu.org and prep.ai.mit.edu won't work any more. From the utexas cvs server (anonymous pserver) I get 2.5.0 as the latest and subversions.gnu.org doesn't seem to allow me in neither using RSH nor SSH. So I am at a loss.
Is there anonymous CVS, where, how?

Is there an up to date release tarball FTP site, where?
Thank you,

Hi, sorry, I don't find any better place to post this question than
the devel list (well, once in 1993 I was hacking the KCL and AKCL code
myself trying to port it to 386BSD, so I might be excused.)

I am working here with a description logic classifier in GCL and it's
bailing out with a "Frame stack overflow" error with a frame
stack of height 653. Normally I would think that this is a termination
issue, but this algorithm is tested and believed to work, yet my
data is pretty big, so I would expect it to run long and deep. But
why should there even be a stack overflow on a machine with virtual
memory? I have set ulimit -s unlimited but to no avail. Is there some
maximum frame stack size parameter in GCL that could be increased?

I fgrepped the source code and could find nothing.

I appreciate any hint. I would really need a large memory model for my
