Meaning of STACK PUKE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Some processor architectures are said to "puke their guts onto the stack" to save their internal state during exception processing. The motorola 68020, for example, regurgitates up to 92 bytes on a bus fault. On a pipelined machine, this can take a while.

[jargon file]
