[Last Edit: 5/28/92]

Switches are preceded with / unless otherwise specified and may be given
with either the full name or the abbreviation (where present).Switches
which accept arguments may use either an equal sign '=' or a colon ':'
between the switch and its argument.

[1] somewhat buggy in 2.31, as DV.EXE will use the specified multiplex
number, but DVXMS.DVR (which DV.EXE loads) still uses the default
DEh if no XDI drivers were loaded prior to DV.

[2] /HW is immediately followed by a colon or an equal sign, 1 to 4 hex
digits indicating the interrupt number, another colon or equal sign,
and "L", "D", "F", "0", "M", "U", or "V" (DV 2.3+). "F" = Foreground,
"V" = Virtualize video (program writes to screen from within hardware
interrupt handler), "0"/"L" deal with disabling DV's handling of an IRQ.

This switch is designed to accomodate failings in DOS application
programs which violate Quarterdeck's view of "standard" programming
procedures (though at least one variant is to correct a failing in
DV itself, but QOS will not divulge which).

[3] /FB, /FO, /SB, and /SO are immediately followed by a colon or an
equal sign and 1 to 4 hex digits

[4] /MR and /MT expect a hex number (/MR up to 4 digits, /MT up to 2 digits)

[5] DV uses two banks of eight interrupts to relocate the hardware interrupts
from their defaults of 08h-0Fh and 70h-77h. /XB specifies that a
particular bank of interrupts not be considered available for the
relocation; the specified hex number must be a multiple of 8 (i.e. X0 or
X8).
