I got some questions about develop program under Menuet 64...

1. How Menuet 64 configure all seg. registers?
2. How to get more system information? ex. available free memory
3. How to allocate memory? (Seems that memory space is defined by header?)

Thanks a lot!

1. Memory management is done with paging, since segment selector bits are mostly ignored in 64 bit mode. You can view the selectors with "Registers" application.
2. Request paging table usage with system calls 26/4 and 9.
3. I'll add an application memory resize similar to Menuet32 to following release.

No problem, I hope that helped Smile
