RESERVE

Syntax RESERVE (bytes, JobID)
Location Timing Toolkit (DIY Toolkit Vol H)

This function grabs an area of memory in the Common Heap similar to ALCHP. However, the area is not released after a new SuperBASIC program is loaded. Standard error returns are returned as values by the function and the program can therefore include error trapping. -3 (Out of Memory) or -2 (Invalid Job ID) are the most common errors. You can also specify a task which will own the memory, and that memory will be removed when that task is removed. This task will normally be 0 (SuperBASIC) or -1 (the current job).
