Category   :Object Pascal
Platform    :All
Product    :All 32 bit  

Question:
How can I instruct the compiler that I require a far pointer
instead of a near pointer?


Answer:
In 16 bit versions of Delphi, all pointers are far pointers. 
When running in a 32 bit environment, all pointers are 
considered to be huge near pointers as there is no concept 
of far pointer that cross process address space without 
thunking.
