Compile your programs with /D and find the real problem. You are possibly
using far too much string space - look to moving some out
to far memory as fixed length strings or TYPE structures.

This is the same as for multi-dimensional as for single dims. You have a 64K
limitation though, which can be somewhat overcome by using
NumBytes& = 101*2*101*2
DEF SEG = VARSEG(Array(0,0))
Bload is the same - without the NumBytes&.
I'm not a door writer, so I can't help you with you fourth question.
