486 or pentium programming...

Does anyone know if there is a patch for TURBO PASCAL 7 that would allow me to use 486 or
pentium assembler directives ??

Not a patch per se, but you could always buy TASM, use it to write .OBJ code,
and link it into the TP code.  BP7 includes a copy of TASM 3.1, but it only
supports up to 486 opcodes -- Pentium and PPro opcodes would still need to be
rolled in the same way you put 386+ code into TP's BASM (i.e., using "db"
directives or inline()).
