cseg segment para public 'code'
; It can also be used to limit the maximum memory available to a compiled
; BASIC program. The option '/M:nnn' is used on the command line, where
; nnn is the number of K-bytes the program is limited to. If no, /M option
; is specified, no memory limitation takes place. For example, '/M:64' would
; limit the program to 64*1024 bytes. The range for nnn is 64 to 1024.
; This routine gets control before BASIC, does its handiwork, and then
; passes control to the BASIC program. It must be linked as follows:
; LINK BASMAIN+yourprog,yourprog,NUL.MAP,BASCOM
; If BASMAIN is unable to limit memory as requested, a message is displayed
; and the execution of the program is continued.
