A stack is a Last In, First Out (LIFO?) data structure that is very common in computer science. A stack is only accessable at one end (usually called the top). An operation that adds an element to a stack is called a push? and one that removes an element is called a pop.

Many [computer archeticture]?s use stacks to handle data and memory addresses (they are called stack-based architectures).
