The main file, DCom, stayed resident, while the other parts were loaded into memory, one at a time, and executed. This was how I kept it in one 40K workspace. I wasn't ready to try using paging yet. I may be more ready now, but I wasn't then.

It shouldn't have loaded more than DCom and one of the part files. It should have given me a memory error while loading the second part file. It didn't. A feature of NitrOS-9? A "bug" in MESS? I don't know.

Well, that is the question.  I suspect its just a difference in
Nitros9 and would behave the same on a real coco, but I'd hate to find
out otherwise as I am doing a project mostly under MESS and don't want
to find out down the road than it won't work on real hardware.  I do
have a coco here that I use for testing now and then, so far I haven't
seen any differences.  If you want to send me some files, I'd be happy
to try a procedure on real hardware and let you know if it behaves
