    The PB/DOS IDE can make use of XMS during compilation, but the native PowerBASIC language does not support XMS.

    However, you can find various shareware libraries and source code in the FILES area at http://www.powerbasic.com/files/pub/pbdos/library/ (look for XMS22.ZIP).

    Hi everyone

    I was wondering- can someone tell me how PB 3.5 for DOS handles
    extended (XMS) memory and protected mode. I had always thought
    it only used expanded and I appear to be wrong since when I was
    working out a problem on my computer I disabled expanded (since
    I hate the stuff anyway) and when I checked memory usage in the
    PB IDE it apparently saw and was using extended memory!!! I
    would like to write TSRs and popup programs that run mainly in
    extended and high memory leaving just a little in low memory
    and I was wondering if I can do that effectively in PB. It
    would be one less reason to use C!!! Thanks for any responds.
