 In recent version the stack limit is controlled by a single limit per
 thread that is controlled by the Prolog flag `stack_limit` and the
-command line argument `--stack_limit=size`, where `size` is a number
+command line argument =|--stack_limit=size|=, where `size` is a number

+_Mbytes_ or _Gbytes_.  Note that digit grouping may be used to write
+large integers.  For example, setting the limit to 10Gb may use
+
+    set_prolog_flag(stack_limit, 10 000 000 000).
 
 Calls to set_prolog_stack/2 that set the limit are translated to setting
 the Prolog flag and printing a _deprecated_ warning.
