FWORD is a FAR POINTER and takes 6 bytes, that's what help says.
But where is this type used?
And what is FAR POINTER in win32?

you will never need this type in Win32 API programming. The first 16 bit give a selector to the 32 bit address.
This is always hard wired for your whole process (also called FLAT MODE) and is one of the major invention of Win95/NT.
If you program Win3.11 you will work heavily with FAR pointers -> its really not very funny, since you can access
the selectors only with the segment registers (cs, ds, es, ..) which support not many asm commands.

I have from time to time managed to drop a few F-WORDS in front of the ladies and survived and all I get is a millisecond of numb silence before it gets ignored. :tongue:
