CHKMON.COM

By Mike Edgerton

CHKMON.COM is a batch file utility that checks to see what kind of
video adapter is installed in your computer, and sets the DOS
errorlevel on exit. You can then read the errorlevel, and make a
determination of what switches to use when loading a program. On a
network that has many different combinations of machines that are
accessing the same programs, you can now determine the command line
switches to use for the monitor combination you have.

To use CHKMON.COM you simply list it in a batch file. The correct
syntax is:
CHKMON

You then check the DOS Errorlevel to determine the adapter card
that is installed. The Errorlevels are as follows:

Errorlevel: Description:
---------------------------------------------------------------
Errorlevel 1 Monochrome Adapter
Errorlevel 2 Hercules Monochrome Adapter
Errorlevel 3 CGA Adapter
Errorlevel 4 EGA Adapter w/Monochrome Monitor
Errorlevel 5 EGA Adapter w/Color Monitor
Errorlevel 6 VGA Adapter w/Monochrome Monitor
Errorlevel 7 VGA Adapter w/Color Monitor
Errorlevel 8 MCGA Adapter w/Mono Monitor
Errorlevel 9 MCGA Adapter w/Color Monitor
Errorlevel 10 EGA Adapter w/CGA Monitor
Errorlevel 11 IBM 8514/A

Help is available by entering:

CHKMON /? or /H or /HELP

To check the version number enter:

CHKMON /V or /VER

This Zip file also includes a batch file to demonstrate CHKMON.COM.
That file is called SHOW.BAT.

CHKMON.COM is Freeware. It cannot be sold for any price. You are
free to use CHKMON.COM on any Network anywhere anytime, as long as
it is not sold.

If you like this program and use it, drop me a line on Compuserve.
