Keyword ‘huge’

Keyword ‘huge’

Question:
I am getting a compile error ‘huge’ obsolete keyword. I am converting a process from Visual C++ 2.0 to 6.0. What keyword could I use in place of ‘huge’?

Answer:
‘huge’ was a 16-bit kludge that disappeared (good riddance!) with the transition to 32-bit, about a decade ago. You should remove this obsolete keyword from your code entirely, along with ‘far’ and ‘near’, which were also removed from Visual C++. If you can’t modify the code, you can place the following macro at the beginning of your program:

#define huge// original code starts below#include < ...whatever >  int main(){ // ..etc.}
