I have the problem to allocate a large block of RAM (about 150MB in one piece,
the machine has 192MB built in). I use Watcom C++, the prog runs under MSDOS
6.22 or DOS7.0 with himem/emm386. Currently, using PMODE/W, I can only get
about 96MB of the RAM, the rest seems unavailable, but mem.exe tells me there
are 199.000 KB there.

What must I do to get ALL of the RAM in my program ???

Please mail me, since I don't read this group:
info AT drfoerst DOT de,
or m DOT barth AT oberberg-online DOT de

Thanks !

Michael Barth
