Apple IIgs #56
Managing Dynamic Segments

Revised by Matt Deatherage (November 1990)
Written by Eric Soldan (July 1989)

This Technical Note discusses application difficulties when transferring control to dynamic segments during low-memory conditions.

Changes since July 1989: The information formerly covered in this Note is now discussed in greater detail in Apple IIgs Technical Note #22, Proper Use of Dynamic Segments.

This Note formerly warned of the dangers of using dynamic segments-if memory is not available for the dynamic segment, the system crashes. Apple IIgs Technical Note #22, Proper Use of Dynamic Segments, covers this problem and strategies for working around it.
