DESPR

Syntax DESPR (bytes)
Location DESPR

The function DESPR uses an un-documented system call to try and release a given number of bytes from the resident procedure memory on the QL. It is unknown how the ROM tries to decide which bytes to release.

WARNING

The system call used only works properly on Minerva ROMs and can crash some versions of the QL. This function should not be used!!

CROSS-REFERENCE

Use RESPR to allocate resident procedure memory, and do not try to release it at a later stage. Use ALCHP and RECHP to allocate areas of memory which may be later released.
