Raid Here, I want to know how to program with the
full capacity of my memory instead of 640K.
(Like my 24 Megs Ram)
Using Turbo Pascal 6.0

I want to know how convert all EMS memory to
the conventional memory.

I don't want to use EMS, because it's to slow.
but I want to be able to MOVE memory around in
conventional.  How can I do this?

Sorry man, you can't.
At least not With Turbo Pascal. TP is a simply read Mode 16bit Compiler (larget 16bit Number is 65535 = 64k) I have never seen a Pascal Program that uses DOS4GW-Extender. You could download FPK Pascal, which is a free 32bit Pascal Compiler it uses GO32v2 which is also an Extender. IF you want to use DOS4GW in any case, i haven'^t testet that, but in that Case download TMT Pascal. TMT is not free Ware
(coast $75) but there is a shareware version wich supports several Extenders. Also DOS4GW. The DOS4GW is usually used by C++ Pograms such as Watcom C++ or DJGPP.

Here the URLs :

FPK, free 32bit Pascal Compiler :
[hmh, i'm at work and not at home. i will give you the URL in a few houres]

TMT Pascal, 32bit Pascal Compiler :
