Thanks a lot Greg. Yes, the code works now.
The assignment inside the for loop (DynPage[i]=0) is not used
anywhere below. I thought that, when the compiler optimizes the code, it
can remove that line. I am writing a small benchmarking application. So, I
don't want that line to be removed by the compiler. Is there a better way
to achieve this?
I am also surprised to see that disabling compiler optimization for
a function caused my code to crash!!
