DEAR Mr. Feldman,

sorry to bother you for this, this is a real newbee problem.
Finally I found an 486 SLC machine, so i can install gnat(307 EZ2LOAD)

I have installed it correctly and hello.adb compiles, links and runs ok.

Anything beyond that just seems too much.
With the textioexa.adb i get compiler out of memory.
I have 10MB diskspace available for the temp file as is suggested in the readme.

I read in the docs of gnat307, it can run on a machine with 4MB and onward.
My machine has 10MB. somehow 2,553K is alwas in use.

As you can see below i have 6,592K free memory beyond the conventional 613.
Should i not be able to compile at least all the examples?

Met vriendelijke groeten,
in afwachting van uw antwoord,

Noam Kloos.
