In ANSI/ISO C, I can use a pointer to access a variable that is external to the program. I am working on an IDE in VBDOS with a stub written in C. I could simply store environment data in a file on the hard drive and load it after each IDE command, but doing it would be slow. I could use POKE/PEEK to copy data to and from the data as allocated by the stub, but this would be even slower and inconvenient. Any better ideas?
