Nifty James' Famous EMS RAM Tester
Version 1.00 of 21 October 1987
This program is designed to test the EMS or EEMS memory upon
the startup of your computer system. The program is styled

patterns are stored correctly.
A progress display is maintained on the screen while the
program is running. It shows
Page 1 tested
for each page tested. If the program encounters an error
during testing, the program will display
Error on page 1!
to indicate that an error occurred.
The EMM memory manager program tests the memory to a very
limited extent. NJRAMT is designed for people who would like
the piece of mind that an additional, more extensive test,
The program tests the memory rather quickly. However, if you
find that you're impatient, and would like to abort the test,
simply strike any key. The program will abort, and "fall
through" to the next command in your CONFIG.SYS file.
