Free Pascal producec 32 Bit code, no more 16 bit. The Cpu gets switched to
protected mode, no more real mode --> do no more the old 640 kb or 1 MB
memory model with XMS or EMS for accessing memory > 1MB.

The memory is adressed with one 32 bit pointer, no more segment:offset
things. The only thing like this are the selectors. Can someone explain
this? I don't know how this works excactly -> 1x 32 Bit pointer or 2 either
(for selector:offset??)

You can allocate memory blocks nealry as you want, no more 64k limitations.
You can create very big arrays, all no problem!
