    exceeding the amount of max lines in borland...

    i remember some time ago someone asking this same question. in my program ive hit the max number of lines borland will let me have in my program (im using borland 5.02). i was wondering if anyone knew how to bypass this problem? thanks a lot to any help in advance, and let me know if you need anymore specifics.
    thanks!

    hmm... maybe per source file there might be a limit, but how about seperating your project in to various headers or even modules. maybe there is some setting in bc5.02 that you can check out. i've heard this question before, but don't recall the answer, nor any explaination as to why such a limit would exist. [personally when i was using borland (4.5) i never ran into that problem, but my programs were <1000 lines at the time, and now that i'm using DJGPP with multiple thousand lines in my program i still don't get any problems at all...] this is a good question...

    table, i believe. i'm not sure becuse i'm not currently at my computer. i managed to optimize a bit of my code so i've got a few hundred more lines to work with before i hit the limit again.
    thanks

    Also, depending on your platform [if it's 16-bit] you might have exceeded the code segment [64 K], so if that applies, you might want to change the memory module to large or huge.

    Or if you use dynamic allocation, use far pointers for some of the non time-critical data.
