DOS32a 9.1.2 does not support paged memory access, but I have updates for
this that have been provided to the original author back in 2006 / 2007. If
this is of interest, I can make the source available.

My DOS based tools test memory, regardless of how much there is, and use all
available processor threads. Paging mode is absolutely required for this.

Narech's original concerns were for game writers, and whether normal 32-bit
DOS programs would be impacted by checking for paging mode. He chose not to
include paging mode support at that time. I've been using my version since
without issue.

That's all very well, but what does it have to do with Jiri's fork of
OW? (see Subject)

If you look at https://github.com/open-watcom/open-watcom-v2/, you will see
the comment "Upgraded to DOS/32A 9.1.2" for the contrib folder. That is how
this posting I made applies.

patch, so I can try to deliver it to him.

I would like him releasing a 9.2 version with that patch, and once =

official, I will add to OW2.0 again.

Thanks for the clarification.

But how is it at all relevant here?

Is the real OW also using 9.1.2?

I guess that for real OpenWatcom you mean OpenWatcom 1.x, not any 2.x =

fork. If so, no, it is not using 9.1.2, but still 7.2 as I commited long=
=

time ago.

Good news is that for sure it can be upgraded to 9.1.2, or if it is wort=
h, =

add the patches by Chip.

BTW, I just contacted Narech. I am thinking on he releasing 9.2.0 with =

that patch, and then integrate it on OpenWatcom distributions.

Thanks.
