Good idea. Now I can see that the theory is right.
for: TTestarray = array [1..100] of ttest;
It goes down from 400 to 25 (using bitpacked).

I don't think this is going to solve my problem.
I need to define the size at runtime.
getmem(lMask, (Elements div 4) +1);
this should be possible, right?

Thank you both.
