Dear List -

Thank you for all your help in the past.

I am running DOS 7.1 [the DOS that underlies Windows98].  The 
computer does NOT have Windows installed on it.

I have a program that had a size of 228,038 bytes and ran perfectly 
in the past.  When I added some more code, increasing the size to 
241,134 bytes I get a SIGSEGV error when I attempt to initialize a 
variable.  The routine was scanned with Splint, which showed no 
errors. When I removed some code, it again ran perfectly.  My feeling 
is that I have overrun the boundary of the area in which the values 
of the variables, or possibly the variables themselves, are stored.

How do I increase these area(s)?

Thanks again.

Ethan Rosenberg
