There used to be a package (Bounds Checker?) that when linked with your program ran it in 80286 protected mode. Each allocation was a separate segment, and any overruns were caught at the hardware level.

The 80386 could do the same for segments up to 1MB in size, but the industry went in the direction of a flat memory model (for obvious reasons).
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
