Nope, and it looks so damn useful. I "appear" to be able to allocate memory using the _C_TS_malloc API but then I'm screwed. If I declare the "pointers" as pointers in RPG then stuff doesn't work because pointers in rpg are 16 bytes, but the teraspace stuff wants 8 bytes. If I declare the pointers are 8 byte alpha fields I think I get a valid allocation, but I can't tell because I can't use the memory because I don't have a pointer to it. I found a PASE API that looks to convert a teraspace pointer to a space pointer, but the api is very clear that this can only be used in PASE programs. C/C++ Programmers have it easy because you can change the storage model to teraspace and all pointers will become 8-byte teraspace pointers. RPG is teraspace "Enabled" but there is no way to change the storage model to teraspace. Teraspace looked incredibly cool for two reasons. 1) Memory allocations > 16Meg and 2) Pointers can be byte-aligned. I need >16Meg but the byte alignment seemed so cool too. In my application I wanted to call a routine that allocated the memory and returned the pointer to the caller as a "magic cookie." The caller should never use the contents of the magic cookie it should just pass it into other functions in my service program that understood how to use it. I can do this with pointers but then I have to tell the user of my routines to make sure that the quad-word alignment of the pointer is preserved at all times, where byte-alignment has no such problems. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: Steve Richter [mailto:srichter@AutoCoder.com] Sent: Tuesday, December 18, 2001 00:18 To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Teraspace memory allocation Walden, Any progress on this ?
