MEMORY STATUS II
Program Information
-------------------
Program (C) Copyright 1992 Quarterdeck Office Systems
Program written by Todd Threadgill,
Quarterdeck Testing and Compatibility
Version: 1.2
Date: 8/14/92

Features:
* Improved screen design for attractiveness and legibility
* Help screen on systems with no available expanded memory (EMS)
* Unmanaged extended memory report (when available)
* One-touch program shutdown


USING MEMORY STATUS II
The program has been designed to be extremely easy to use. Add the program to
your DESQview or DESQview/X menu by following the procedures in your DV or
DVX manual, then start up the program. You should see a screen that is
divided up into three or four sections, as follows:

1. MANAGED BY QEMM
This section provides information about how much memory is under the management
of the Quarterdeck Expanded Memory Manager (QEMM-386), or another memory
manager if you are not using a 386/486 machine.

Total: Displays the total amount of memory managed by QEMM;
Total Available: Shows how much of this memory is not actually in use
at the present time;
Largest Available: Displays the largest window size you will be able to
open inside DESQview or DESQview/X in its present configuration.

2. UNMANAGED BY QEMM
This value indicates the amount of extended memory that is not currently under
the control of QEMM-386. QEMM's EXTMEM and MEMORY parameters directly
determine the value displayed in this field. Note that if your QEMM386.SYS
device line in the CONFIG.SYS does not contain an EXTMEM or MEMORY parameter,
this field will not be displayed. Also, this field does not appear inside
DESQview/X.

3. CONVENTIONAL
This area reports on conventional-memory usage inside DESQview and DESQview/X,
as follows:

Total: Displays the total amount of conventional memory that was
available when you started DESQview;
Total Available: Shows how much of this memory is not actually in use
at the present time. Note that this value does not indicate the
size of the programs you can run!
Largest Available: Shows the largest available block of conventional
memory that can be allocated under the present configuration.
Note that this value also does not indicate the size of the
programs you can run!

4. COMMON MEMORY (IN BYTES)
This area is the same as CONVENTIONAL, except that its reports apply to "Common
Memory", memory used internally by DESQview and DESQview-specific programs
(like Memory Status II itself).


EXITING THE PROGRAM
Unlike the original Memory Status (which ships with DESQview and DESQview/X),
you can exit Memory Status II by pressing the ESC key.
