    Heap

    Hi guys ;
    I know what's heap and why we sometimes need it; but my question for every program we write we have stack and heap which its sizes are moving dynamically ; but my question is ; if I don't use any dynamic allocation ; will be there at all a space specified for a heap memory and not use? in other words ; I mean while we are not using any dynamic allocation in my program ; will there still a minimum fixed size of memory specified as a heap although we sometimes not using it but it's still fixed for a heap memory ...

    to sum up ; is there an offset size of heap memory that starts/grows from it in every program?

    thanks!

    It depends...
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
