Problems have emerged when some programs compiled using Borland Pascal with fast Pentium II processors.
A Runtime 200 error causes a problem when a routine inside the Pascal employer, called CRY, attempts to judge the speed of a Pentium II. If the number is greater than Hex FFFF, it won't fit, according to members of an official Intel newsgroup. That can deliver error messages with some programs that use the routine.
But Frank Oliver, a member of the group, has posted a patch for the problem which also runs correctly on slower Pentium IIs and other processors.
The patch, along with a detailed explanation of the problem, is available at http://www.pro-desk.com/inside/
