Hi folks,

very sorry to trouble you. I have written a small program in gpp under
Linux and want to port it to DOS. I successfully installed DJGPP for this
purpose and the program compiles fine. The problem arises during
calculations. For some reason (unknown to me) the result when querying an
array XX[i] is not the same. It all works fine under Linux, but I get
complete nonsence under DOS. The problem seems not to be constistent
within a run (a number stored is returned as diffrent values), but I
haven't tested diffrent runs, yet.

Could this be a memory access problem by DOS? Do DJGPP and some drivers
not go together? I am normally working under Linux and Sun's in the
futher, so I do not like to get into too much detailed DOS knowledge. If
any such thing has occured with someone else or just depends on our local
network, I would be very grateful for help.

P.S.: Some other programs from an international databank want run under
      DOS, as well. That might be the same problem.
