DOS, Memory problems and wait retrace
Hi, sorry for my bad english.
I know c and I would like learn to code demos under dos, but I have many problems with lack of memory. Borland c++ 3 doesn't let my create array bigger than ~64k (I don't remember the exact size) and now I'm wondering how to skip this limitation without have to learn doing it in 80386 assembly.
The lack of memory makes many troubles to me when I must load files (big images for example).
What are the most common solutions?
Another question, I would know more about the "wait retrace" routine... are there any tutorials? A friend of mine explained to me a simple routine but it's damn slow, so I think that there are some quicker ways to do it.
