This command will produce a memory status report, which includes
the total normal memory installed in the system, as well as the
portion of that memory that is available for use by applications
programs. On systems that have an expanded memory board
installed that conforms to the Lotus/Intel/Microsoft EMS spec,
that memory will also be reported. In addition, if you are
running on an AT or compatible and have extended memory installed
(above the 1 Mbyte boundary), that will also be reported.
