Q27128: Cannot Debug Code in Overlays in Small or Compact Model
Article: Q27128 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.10 2.20 2.30 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 14-AUG-1989 Question: I have a C program, compiled with Microsoft C Version 5.00, which consists of several modules linked together as overlays. I am not able to trace into code in the overlays. I compiled in the default memory model. What is wrong? Response: The modules must be compiled in medium or large memory model to be overlaid. In the default model (small), or in the compact model, there is only one code segment, which cannot be overlaid. The main module is always resident and cannot be overlaid. You must use the compile option /AH, /AL, or /AM.
