    My biggest gripe is that the BLOAT function is not 64 bits. Because that would make it TWICE as BLOATed.

    I have purchased three or four licences in the past year for client machines that have developer environments.

    Personally I can see these compilers outliving me. Perhaps I am a "missing something" but 64 bit is not anywhere near an issue for me. I guess if I couldn't call the WIN API that might be a problem. I have PB programs that can take advantage of multi-core CPUs, nearly endless memory and disk, AND if I had a clue how to do it ASM code!

    So the question is... If you have a WIN Server "Core" installation with one well threaded PB program running - when will that be obsolete? Perhaps I am just a slow learner but I find new POWER in POWERBASIC all the time. This forum is a huge part of that power.

      Don't you mean 4,294,967,295 (2^32) times more bloated?

        Not until after I am.
