  Maximum size of buffer on stack?  No, because it is machine/platform/program specific.  
   Fo certain platform supplyer may provide something like this. Actually I saw it done for G-OS (it is some obscure OS I had to work with ) but it isn't part of a standard as far as I know.

   What is the real question though?  How big of a buffer you can allocation on a stack?

I belieave you can get the max size from the following

std::string().max_size()

Example:
size_t MyMaxSize = std::string().max_size();
cout << MyMaxSize << endl;

This should be a good indicator of how big your buffer can be even on a non-string object.

Jane: Emily Litella! It's "Max size", not "Maximize"
Emily: Oh.... that's different.... never mind.
