You can include the REM $DYNAMIC command, then use FIXED
LENGTH variables, such as DIM variable1 AS STRING *
That will free up your DGROUP memory, IF you're using string variables.

Or, you can freq "EZSTR.ZIP" from me. It's from John Strong
(EZ-Windows). It will put arrays in upper memory, limited
only by your system memory. A very handy feature in it is
the "INSERT" and "DELETE" functions, which allows you to
INSERT or DELETE an array element. You have a$(1) thru
a$(1000); you can INSERT a$(500), lets say, which will
shift the OLD a$(500) up to a$(501), along with all the
remaining a$(502-1001). Same with delete. Handy stuff!
