Is there a pascal compiler that will use the memory capabilites without requiring to use a graphics interface?

What do you mean memory capabilities and graphics interface.
If you mean ability to use all extended memory without graphic mode, you need
to use Protected mode - it allow access to all mem.

Commented:
maybe you should learn some delphi,  that is pascal for windows.

From the way I asked the question, one could assume I have at least 8 meg of ram(actually I have 20 meg).  What I am looking for is a compiler (such as Turbo Pascal by Borland) that will allow me to use all the memory available since I do not have the option of using a "ram drive" nor do I want to use a ram drive.  What I am after is having larger arrays/linked lists without running out of memory.  Also I want to have source codes with larger that 64k of codes.  I do not want and refuse to to use graphical interfaces such as "Visual Basic...."

Thanks

All programs run in real mode, which means that they have a 64K code block and a 64K data block. More memory can be used if you allocate memory for it. (malloc?) Also, you could use pointers to cut down on memory usage.
