Windows 10 update 2004 Segment Heap?

Postby foldy » Sun Jul 05, 2020 8:28 am

Windows 10 update 2004 now supports Segment Heap which can reduce RAM usage of programs like Google Chrome or MS Edge. Can it be used for FAH too? Can a user set the app manifest or does it need to get compiled by FAH? ... indows-10/

I am not in this loop, but let me speculate baselessly. (I last managed a heap in the Apple ][ BASIC, 35 years ago)

A heap is used where you have variable length data, (text and graphics) and not for numerical data, which has a fixed length. (with fixed length data, an array is more useful)
This makes a browser an ideal App to improve with a better heap. F@H is not very dependent on text or graphics so should show minimal improvement.
