KEYWORDS: STACK, DATA, DATA STRUCTURE, MICROCOMPUTER, PROGRAM.

ABSTRACT:

The skilled Programmer is at liberty to choose whatever data structure· tthat will contribute to aneventual program that is relatively efficient) for the storage of data items to pe manipulated by his program. STACK is one of the data structures that can be chosen to accomplish the above task and aim. However, no matter the choice of data structure, a programmer directly or indirectly makes use of  the stack. The aim of this paper is to point out how a programmer must make use of a stack before obtaining a result from his program. Illustrations are made of how stack can be explicitly defined and used as a data structure using two programming languages (PASCAL and Assembly Language on IBM microcomputers) and the implicit use of stack at the program translation and execution stage.
