Using MASM 6.15 in WIN32 console mode.
If in my program I make a memory allocation as

hG DD 16000

along with other stuff the assembly time is prety fast.

But if I change the 16000 to 65000 for instance it takes
about 5 seconds to assemble

If I make the size 1000000 it seems to take forever.

I have 512MB of memory on an 800 MHZ Athlon Processor.
The Task Manager does not indicate anything odd in memory usage.
What could be causing this??

you probably mean hG DD 1000000 DUP (0)...
why should the compiler have problems with
interpreting a single lousy doubleword? if
it's really DUP then try to throw it in the .DATA?
section, if not then ... i don't know :)

You are absolutely right. It was stupid of me but Idid
omit the dup(0). I posted a correction this AM.
It is in the data section.
