It is a Giga-Word! They finally invented the thing! Very Happy

FASM has dt and dp directives which then probably mean tera-words (tera-bytes?) and peta-words (peta-bytes?). Which is quite possible since FASM also supports virtual directive that presumably allows to use virtual memory and since FASM is internally 65-bit which means the maximum addressing space limit is somewhere around 32k petabytes. That also explains why
Code:
dt 33554433 dup(0) ; 32768 * 1024 + 1 terabytes = 32k petabytes + 1 TB    
fails to compile Smile
