This is a little public-domain assm. utility I got out of The Capital PC
User's Group Newsletter, THE MONITOR, July 1989 issue. The information
provided below was provided by Dan Zoll, a contributing writer to the
MONITOR.

This little utility, when run from a batch file or the command line, will
put a VGA monitor into 50-line mode, or an EGA monitor into a 43-line mode.
It is not TSR and so will not conflict with any other program in your
system.

VGA50.COM works great with WordPerfect 5.0. Simply put VGA50.com in your
startup bat file per the example below:

WordPer.BAT
-----------

CD WP\WORK
VGA50 [ASSUMES THAT VGA50 IS IN YOUR PATH]
WP /SS-50,80
MODE CO80
CD \

In WordPerfect 4.2 you need to run the SETUP program to tell WP to use
50 lines.

Your monitor will return to normal 25 lines after running programs that
reset vidio mode. Also, you can't use VGA50 with LOTUS, sorry!

As shown above, you can return to normal 25 lines by issuing MODE CO80.
