Are you talking about "Dynamic Memory Allocation" ?
If yes then search Google with the following keywords:
Quote:
Advantages of Dynamic Memory Allocation
or you are referring to "Direct memory access" ?
If yes then search Google with the following keywords:
Quote:
Advantages of Direct memory access
Read the links pointed by Google and when you don't understand something post back here.

and now would you bother to explain what DMA you are referring to ?
