Memchk and chkmem are similar to DOS's CHKDSK command, only they do no
checking of disk information. They only display RAM memory information.
This allows for quiker response than CHKDSK, especially on a large hard
MEMCHK is the PASCAL version and CHKMEM is the BASIC version.
Memchk was compiled with the BCD version of Turbo Pascal version 3.0.
It employs the FORM function, and therefore changes to remove the FORM
function would be necessary for it to compile under the standard 3.0 TP
compiler. I have the latest version (5.5) of Turbo Pascal, but don't
use it very much, so I'm not sure what changes would be necessary to
compile this program under versions 4.0 and higher.
Chkmem was written in Microsoft BASIC Version 7.0 using Crescent
Software's P.D.Q. libraries. It should compile under older versions of
BASIC, however the CALL INTERRUPT will probably need to be changed.
I ask for no donations for my software, I write programs for a living
eight hours (plus) a day, and do these because I enjoy it. These are my
small contributions to the public domain, mostly dedicated to the numerous
sysops I've encountered who feel no sacrifice in donating their priceless
time, effort, and equipment for our usage. If you do find one of my
programs interesting or useful, or have an objective criticism, by all
means, please drop me a line. I'd rather receive comments on my programs
than a few dollars contribution any day!
Look for my other public domain software:

MAKEMRG.ZIP - Text merge file maker.
UUDOS.ZIP - User Un-friendly DOS with Sound Blaster support.
TMORE.ZIP - Like DOS's 'TYPE xxxxxxxx.xxx | MORE', but better.

IBC, TAB2SPC, ADDNUMS, LOWCASE, TFL, MAKEMRG, and UUDOS are written in
Microsoft BASIC. FLASH, and PAGEDISP, are written in Borland Turbo PASCAL
3.0. TMORE, ADIR, and PUSHPOP are written in Borland Turbo C. CHKMEM is
written in Borland Turbo PASCAL, and Microsoft BASIC 7.0 using Crescent
Software's P.D.Q. libraries. All include source, documentation, and
