29ROWS.ASM, v1.0, Peter Nelson


This program will give you 29 rows of text on a Hercules or IBM CGA color-
graphics card. It works wonders with DOS, and is compatible with certain
other programs which use contiguos screen memory. It works with my copy of
BRIEF (using the -L29 option), but the screen flickers unbearably. To run
it, just type 29ROWS and press ENTER. Edlin screens, DIRectory
listings, et. al. will be 29 rows long. The only hitch? You have to patch
the COMMAND.COM file so the CLS command will clear all 29 lines. If
you have DOS V3.2, change byte at offset 2827 from 18 hex to 1C hex. If you
have DOS V3.1, change byte at offset 263B from 19 hex to 1D hex. If you
don't have either, go out and buy DOS V3.2! Oh yes, it is memory resident,
and occupies less than 1k of memory.


WARNING: Don't run this program unless you have a CGA card.

Have Fun !!!

graphics, although the resulting visual effect when used with it is rather
unusual!
