I am using GCC version 3.4.4 for the Arm so I assume it supports the
C99 variable size arrays so what do I need to do to have it use the
real stack? I assume even with this selected the code will still
malloc space for other items?
Does the amount of space needed vary based on the quality and
complexity used to compress the file or on the type of sound in the
file? (so I know what combinations I need to test with)
