I am currently programming on BC++3.1 for data acquisition purposes and
I am finding out that I am running out of memory.  The DMA subroutines
provided by the manufacturer of the boards are written for BC++3.1.
I am contemplating making the move to djgcc, while the part
that does the actual communication with the board will still be compiled
using BC++3.1.  Would I then be able to link that "board-communication"
part with the rest of the program without much trouble?.  Since,
as mentioned in one of your readme files, DPMI is not supported under djgcc,
how would that effect the DMA transfers routines written and compiled in
BC++3.1?.  The whole idea of the move is to be able to acess that 
extra memory since my program is growing bigger with variable and code size.
If the above is not feasible any advice at all?. I checked the
price of PharLap 286 (16 bit) it is prohibitive. 
your help is much appreciated.

Samir.
