[Oberon] Memory allocation

Suppose I want to make a database manager like dBase.

Then I would need to be able to allocate random amounts of memory and I 
would need pointers that can be incremented and decremented.

AFAIK I cannot allocate random amounts of memory in Oberon. And pointer 
arithmatic is also a definite nono.

Does this mean that a program like dBase is not feasible in Oberon? 
Without having to revert to silly methods like fixed record sizes.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
