It has to do with the memory model you are using... If you are using the LARGE or HUGE memory model, then you use HUGE memory pointers. == Huge pointers are like far pointers, just more so: they are always normalized (ie offset part is between 0 and 15), and segment wrapping-around do not occur if you use them.
