I have a problem with my quickbasic compiler.
I want to compile a rather large basic program (about 1200 lines)
but the compiler doesn't start compiling (you don't see the counting
of lines running) but gives the error message:

"Criticial error - insufficient memory "

But my IBM-XT has 640 kB memory (256k on main board and 384 add-on
on Quadmaster short ram board).
Now, you think 'well, you just haven't got enough memory'.
But I've seen the compilation go well on a portable Ericson with 512kB !

So what's the problem ? I think my memory is ok.
What options can I use with Quickbasic ?

The loading of the basic program in the build-in editor of Quickbasic
goes ok.

I would apreciate any help !
