DATA_AREA

Syntax DATA_AREA size size=0…850
Location Turbo Toolkit

This command is only used by the Turbo compiler and should be located at the start of your program before any active program lines.

The command specifies how much dataspace (size kilobytes) should be specified for the compiled program.

This dataspace is used by a task for stack space and a temporary store whilst it is running.

Example

10 DATA_AREA 32

NOTE

This setting will override a previous TURBO_objdat directive in the same program. It will also be overridden by a later TURBO_objdat directive in the same program.

CROSS-REFERENCE

DATASPACE allows you to find out how much dataspace has been set aside for a program. See COMPILED and TURBO_objfil for other compiler directives. TURBO_objdat is exactly the same.
