Bones-69 Posted February 23, 2011 Share Posted February 23, 2011 I have an idea for a new program/game and I am doing the intial homework to work out memory in advance. As part of my homework I have run the following simple program; 10 DIM A$(27),A(2268) 20 FOR I=1 TO 27 :: A$(I)=RPT$("F",84) :: NEXT I I run this in Classic 99 and SIZE reports; 11466 BYTES OF STACK FREE 6265 BYTES OF PROGRAM SPACE FREE I run this in Win994a and SIZE reports; 9378 BYTES OF STACK FREE 6265 BYTES OF PROGRAM SPACE FREE Any idea what is going on here? I need to nail the memory (limitations) in advance before I go any further. Also... As a general learning curve observation, I always thought PROGRAM SPACE was effectively the space only used by typing in the program and was separate from allocation of variables. This obviously isn't the case? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
