The "out of memory" error you're getting is almost always because of a code
segment  that is  larger than  the 64K  limit. Try
breaking your code into separate modules.

To do this, create a new blank  .BAS file, _load_ your
program into the IDE along with it, and  then use the move
command from the  subs window to move your subs into the
second module. You will also need to copy and paste your
declarations into  the main module  of the second  file.
Use the  "Set Main Module" command in the Run menu and
select the file that contains the main module code. Then
choose the "Save All" command from the file menu.
