has extended the address space accessible to applications beyond the traditional 32-bit address space. This new address space is referred to as 64-bit virtual memory and requires a 64-bit pointer for memory access. The operating system has an additional set of new memory allocation routines that allows programs to allocate and release 64-bit memory. In OpenVMS Alpha version 7.0, this set of routines is the only mechanism available to acquire 64-bit memory. For application programs to take… Expand
