This isn't a problem with your program size. It's a problem with DGroup
usage. A couple of ways to get around it:

    1. Make sure your numeric and fixed-length string arrays are
       $Dynamic. The best way to insure this is to use REDIM instead of

    2. If you are using SUBs and FUNCTIONs, remove the "STATIC" keyword
       from the end (e.g. "SUB MyRoutine STATIC"). This forces local
       variables to be allocated on the stack instead of giving them a
       permanent place in Dgroup.

    3. If you are using large quoted strings, you might want to
       consider moving them out into a file.
