The information in this article applies to:
FoxPro 2.x Only
When you want to get the most out of FoxPro and the memory available and are not running other applications in Windows, add the following line to the CONFIG.FPW file: '
MEMLIMIT = 85
This line will cause FoxPro to take 85 percent of the memory available under Windows, thus limiting the number of other applications or utilities that can be open at the same time. MEMLIMIT defaults to 1.5 MB if the MEMLIMIT command is not included in the configuration file. However, the MEMLIMIT statement will not have any effect in Visual FoxPro since memory is dynamically allocated to the program.
FoxPro 2.x and Visual FoxPro
To further increase performance, add the following lines to the CONFIG.FPW file: '
REFRESH = 0,0 STATUS BAR = OFF
In addition, if you are on a network, make sure your temporary, sort, and work files all point to a local or RAM drive, provided the RAM drive is large enough.
