ummm I didn't see that source was included... use Tokai's sources, they'll be probably better :-)

In reply to Comment 3 (Crumb // AAT):
...I would have the program stick around, and a small quit routing to clean up the memory so you wouldn't have to reset your computer in order to get your memory back. :P Not sure if that's what Tokai's does. ;)

How do you get Foundation to run anyway? I've got Foundation Gold and I don't think it ran on my MOS system (actually it didn't want to run very well on my A4000 at that. :P)

In reply to Comment 5 (Stephane Desrosiers):
OK, if that's what you want:

#include <stdio.h>

char *rancidpointer;

int main(argc,**argv)
{
if argc!=1
{
printf("USAGE: %s amount_of_memory_in_MBytes \n",argv[0]);
}
else
{
rancidpointer=(char *)malloc(atoi(argv[1])*1024*1024);

while (1) {}
}
exit(0);
}

*sigh*

This simple problem makes so much trouble for some of you. You really should look to the included source. It makes very small binary and is pure.


I really wonder where are the real amiga coders left?

I am completely aware that this would suck cycles.

It was a joke

So whats the problem, really. There are games that won't work because you have TOO MUCH memory? Isn't that a bit silly?

What's the problem with that? Is it using up memory?

(Oh the irony)
