I am trying to allocate XMS-memory, but it all is halted because of this...THING!
Please help me
Well, I totally agree, except for the fact that the roll-over would be a problem, which it really wouldn't... Since the only thing you will be using the dword for (even after the addition) will be doing more interrupt calls, there really is no such thing as a "roll over" since the interrupt just will interpret the numer unsigned.
(for those who don't know: a "roll-over" does not actually change the number, it is just a matter of interpretation... and since only the addition, not the interpretation, will be handled by TP, there is no problem.)
You can't use linear address in TP7.0 :-)You would have to split it up again usingAND $FFFF0000 and AND $0000FFFF, or force it directly into a pointer variable, thus removing the "signed" interpretation.
(it's just that I can't come up with any further use for the number in pascal whatever... Ofcourse I understood what you meant with your remark, but I just thought I had to be annoying and point out that it won't be much of practical problem... nutthing said 'bout the validity of your post)
happy pascalizing the watcher
