I am a user of OS2  and now I have following problems:
1. I installed OS2 on my PC and I want to use a serial port (COM2) to
   connect to a printer but when I want to print a file, the printer did
   not respose.  I set COM2: speed 960; parity none;stop bit 1;length 8;
   hankshake none and connected COM2 to PRINTER1. Is there a trick to set
   a printer? I installed OS2 on others with paralell printer and it is fine.
   Please let me know if you know what the problem is?

2. I wrote a program using PROSPERO PASCAL to carry out linkage analysis. This
   program has to use the very big ARRAYs and RECORDs. I mean it needs a lot of
   space. So, when I compile I always get error message indicate that "SIZE EX-
   CEEDS 65520 BYTE". If I use large memory model, I can get rid of some of the
   errors but not all of them.
   Is there a way to solve this problem? If not, what is the advantage to use
   OS2? And are there some other computer languages can do so? (on PC)

Thanks in advance
