DOS32pae - a PAE experiment

Dos32pae is a program that is supposed to be added (by a linker) to a 32-bit PE binary - a so-called "stub". The stub is executed when the binary is launched in DOS. As Japheth describes it, "Using PAE paging, this tiny 'DOS extender' - although 32-bit and thus limited to 4GB of address space - is able to use huge amounts of memory. There's a sample supplied, Alloc.asm, that demonstrates this feature, backfilling 4092 MB of "linear" memory with physical memory allocated via XMS v3.5 beyond the 4 GB barrier." Dos32pae is under the open source MIT license. You can find it at Dos32pae's GitHub
