BF=> I have written a BBS in  QuickBASIC 4.5. The BBS source code is  about
    70K long, and works great when  run in the interpreter, but when  I try
    to compile it, I get a message saying out of memory error and it  won't
    compile... I've tried compiling it  with the BRUN45.EXE option and  its
    still too big... It says something like 45827 bytes free, 0 bytes  left
    OUT OF MEMORY. Please tell me  there's a way to compile my  program! If
    not, can PDS 7.1 do it? Where can I get PDS 7.1? (What is PDS 7.1?)

        Try to  compile it  with the  /s option  which will  save the  long
strings in the object file instead of in the symbol table. If you have many
large strings, this will save a considerable amount of memory.
