Re: Utilities for Novell Networks!


Here are some general but productive utilities for the Network
Administrator. They are all designed for interactive/batch use and
work with Netware 2.15 or later. (Latest being Netware 3.11).
These utilities have been designed to help ease the network
administrator in his tasks of maintaining the network.
Please support the Shareware concept if these utilities save you
measurable amounts of time. Details about registration are on the
last page.

There are at least 35 utilities documented in this printable text
file. Most are written using Microsoft C 6.0 and Netware C
Interface for DOS. Also, included are some sample batch/login
scripts that illustrate some uses for the utilities.

Utilities are described in the following documentation along with
the exitlevel codes. Also, using ? as the first parameter when
executing a utility will display the syntax options allowed.

Utilities marked 'currently unavailable' may be deleted from this
readme.txt if it is believed the utility will by difficult to
finish or appears to be unneeded. If you do have a utility that
you would like to see, then please send a suggestion with your
registration fee. If it is feasible to create it, then I will.


Caution: It is best that you verify that your source for this
shareware (unregistered) package is a system that tries to verify
that its downloadable files are unmodified and clean. It is
possible that someone may infect these files and/or modify these
programs and then redistribute them which then may cause you
grieve. Please take adequate precautions.

This utility will display/change the Directory/File ownership
of the current working subdirectory and all of its
subdirectories. Valid ownernames consist of UserNames,
GroupNames and ServerNames.
It will ask:
OLD OWNER NAME to search or NA for deleted owners, or ALL
for all owners found in the subdirectories
NEW OWNER NAME that the specified

Sample usages: Files owned by deleted owners may be re-owned
by valid users; correctly document disk space usage by
ownership; overcome accounting limitation dealing with
deleted users; used with NRPTOWN, to produce an accurate
disk space consumption report for administration /
documentation purposes;

Example: NCHGOWN \APPS\ACAD11 ALL AUTOCAD
will change the ownership of all files/directories at
\APP\ACAD11 and all its subdirectories to the group
owner AUTOCAD.

NCHKCSYS


NCHKCSYS MinimumFiles MinimumBuffers MinimumEnvironment


This utility will read the workstation's (C:\CONFIG.SYS) file
and check if the file has the minimum count of items that you
specify above.

If COMMAND.COM does not exist on Drive C:, it will then attempt
to read CONFIG.SYS on Drive A:

Sample Usage: Modifying all workstations so that they will re-
serve more environment space (needed if your users have alot of
SET and/or PATH parameters); ensure that all workstations in
the field have the needed minimum conditions to operate safely
on the network; to overrule an individual 'fooling' with his
workstation;


Returned Exitlevels are:

9 - Syntax error.
7 - Error reading CONFIG.SYS
6 - Error writing CONFIG.SYS
5 - Wrote New CONFIG.SYS
4 - Files number increased.
3 - Buffers number increased.
2 - Environment Space number increased.
0 - No changes made to CONFIG.SYS

NCHKRPRN


NCHKRPRN PrintServerName ALL
To display status of all printers on specified Print
Server.

NCHKRPRN PrintServerName Printer#
To display status of specified printer and specified Print
Server.

NCHKRPRN CHECK
Read the (\PUBLIC\NCHKRPRN.LST) file listing to check if
the current workstation should be running RPRINTER. If it
is, then report the status of the specified RPRINTER (Not
Connected, Change Paper, Ready, ...). If a Print JobName
exists in the \NCHKRPRN.LST file for the current station,
then start a CAPTURE using the specified Print JobName.


This utility will report the current status of the specified
printer on the specified Print Server. Also, it can warn the
enduser that his printer needs attention, and also return an
exitlevel based upon the printer status. (Also, this exitlevel
will enable the administrator to modify the flow on the batch
file.)


The following example will check to see if the current
workstation should be running RPRINTER. If it should, then
check the status. If RPRINTER is NOT CONNECTED (level: 2),
then PAUSE the screen so that the enduser can see the
message. Otherwise, if it is not that error, then skip to the
rest of the batch file.

NCHKRPRN CHECK
IF EXITLEVEL 3 GOTO NOPROB
IF NOT EXITLEVEL 2 GOTO NOPROB
rem Not Connected
PAUSE
:NOPROB


View the file NCHKRPRN.LST, for the correct data format of
workstation RPRINTER information.

Sample Usages; when setup, it will warn the enduser that he
needs to take action (Turn ON Printer, Reboot, ...) for the
printer that is directly attached to his station, while running
with RPRINTER;

NCMPDATE

NCMPDATE Drive:\Subdirectory\FileName MM/DD/YY


This utility will compare the specified Date with the the
specified File's Modification Date. This is usefull when used
in batch files that you want to control the updating of files
based on their last date of modification.

Example: NCMPDATE C:\NET\IPX.COM 02/01/91


Returned ErrorLevels:

4 or greater if there was a fatal error or other...
3 - specified file could not be accessed
2 - if file's date is later than the specified date
1 - if file's date is equal to the specified date
0 - if file's date is sooner than the specified date

NCMPDRVR


Compare the currently loaded drivers with specified parameters

This utility will read information from the currently loaded
workstation shells, and depending on the specified command (and
result), will return a errorlevel.
This errorlevel can be used in batch files for executing update
routines, or just notifying the network administrator when the
workstation is running a specified driver.


To compare the IPX driver version currently in memory.

syntax: NCMPDRVR IPXVersion IPX
example: NCMPDRVR 3.10 IPX

ErrorLevel 1 - if currently loaded IPX >= specified IPX
version
ErrorLevel 0 - if currently loaded IPX < specified IPX
version


To compare the IRQ number currently in memory.

syntax: NCMPDRVR IRQAddress IRQ
example: NCMPDRVR 15 IRQ

ErrorLevel 1 - if loaded IPX uses the specified IRQ address
ErrorLevel 0 - if loaded IPX does not use the specified IRQ
address


To compare the Network shell currently in memory.

syntax: NCMPDRVR ShellVersion NETX
example: NCMPDRVR 3.22 NETX

ErrorLevel 1 - if currently loaded Shell >= specified Shell
version
ErrorLevel 0 - if currently loaded Shell < specified Shell
version



ErrorLevel > 1 - could not check version or other fatal error.

NCOPYIPX


NCOPYIPX WorkStationDrive:\Path\IPX.COM


This utility will read the WorkStation's IPX.COM version and
configuration information. It will match this against the
master on the server, and if the workstation doesn't match, it
will copy IPX.COM from the server to the workstation.

New on Sept. 19, 1991: This utility will read NCOPYIPX.LST in
the current working subdirectory. This list file will contain
workstation lan option names, and the pathname that the drivers
will be found for the specified driver type. So, hence, you
CAN separate drivers that are made by the same manufacturer
and/or different driver types made for the same card type.
Read NCOPYIPX.LST for syntax of readable text list file.

This utility can run as a standalone without the workstation's
network drivers loaded.(if needed)

Sample usage: Easily! upgrade workstations to different IPX
versions (IPX.COM);

The current working subdirectory (that this program is called
from) must have a structure that is in a
PathName \ Interrupt# \ I/O Base \ IPX.COM order.
For example:

G_ETHERN\IRQ3
G_ETHERN\IRQ3\II
G_ETHERN\IRQ5\220h
G_ETHERN\IRQ5\240h
G_ETHERN\IRQ15\240h
G_ETHERN\IRQ15\240h\II
NETWORTH\IRQ12\240h
NETWORTH\IRQ15\240h
NETWORTH\IRQ15\240h\II
EtherNet II frame IPX files are in II subdirectory.
This utility can read the difference between a normal
802.3 and an EtherNet II type frame. The Ethernet_II
framed IPX.COM but be located in the II subdirectory
of the interrupt or the IOBase subdirectory.

If the driver (IPX.COM) does not exist in the I/O Address
subdirectory, then it will look in the Interrupt subdirectory.
(So, hence, it will get a Networth Irq=15 IOBase=340h 's
IPX.COM from the NETWORTH\IRQ15 subdirectory if
NETWORTH\IRQ15\340h does not exist.)

This utility has been tested on drivers by:

Page 9

3-COM Thin Wire NICs
Networth 10BaseT NICs
Gateway Thin Wire NICs
Western Digital Thin Wire NICs
Xircom 10BaseT Adapters

What is wonderful about the 16bit cards, is that you set the
cards for higher interrupts than 10 to help reduce the
possibilities of conflict.
Example Setup:
in a batch file is:
CD F:\SUPPORT\DRIVERS change to driver
subdirectory
NCOPYIPX C:\NET\IPX.COM execute this utility with it
specifying that the
workstation drivers are in
C:\NET subdirectory.

The program will first read the manufacturer, IRQ, and I/O
Base from the IPX driver. It will display a message
similar to:
Workstation Lan Option: Networth ...
Path: Networth Irq: IRQ15 Base: 340h

so, the program will first look in the subdirectory
NETWORTH\IRQ15\340H for the IPX.COM file, if it doesn't
find it here then it go to the NETWORTH\IRQ15
subdirectory. These subdirectories (NETWORTH\IRQ15, ...)
must be found under the current subdirectory (ei.
F:\SUPPORT\DRIVERS in this example) or else a message will
be returned that the driver was not found.


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Incorrect or Short Command Line parameter
8 - Workstation IPX.COM not found
7 - Could not read Workstation's temporary IPX
6 - Server IPX.COM not found
5 - Could not write workstation IPX.COM
4 - Could not read Server IPX.COM
3 - Error writing new IPX.COM file
1 - Workstation IPX.COM has been updated
0 - Date/Time stamp same between Server and Workstation











Page 10



NCOPYNEW


NCOPYNEW Drive:\Path\SourceFileName Drive:\Path\DestFileName


This utility will copy contents of SourceFileName to
DestFileName, if DestFileName is older than SourceFileName or
if DestFileName does not exist. Presently wildcards are not
supported. This utility is small enough that it may be called
(Shelled) by another program.

Sample usages: Distribute newer versions of software that is
used on the workstation; distribute memos, files, and
other mass distribution;


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Invalid syntax
8 - Could not find the 1st file
7 - Error occurred while accessing 2nd file
6 - Error occurred while writing to 2nd file
1 - 1st FileName copied over 2nd FileName
0 - Date/Time stamp same




























Page 11



NCOPYSCR


NCOPYSCR Drive:\Path\ScriptFile


This utility is similar to NCOPYNEW except that it reads a
script file instead of the prompt line. A sample script file
is provided.
If the symbol ! is used before the source path\filename in the
script file, then the utility will copy the file to the
destination if the date/time stamp is not the same.
If no beginning symbol is used, then the normal 'copy if
outdated' rule applies.

Sample usages: Distribute newer versions of software that is
used on the workstation; distribute memos, files, and
other mass distribution;


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Syntax Error.
8 - Unable to find Script File.
6 - Error writing destination file.
0 - Normal Exit.



























Page 12



NCPY2SUB


NCPY2SUB Drive:\Path\FileName


This utility will copy FileName to all existing subdirectories
of the current default subdirectory.
Example:
current subdirectory: \GRP\DOC
NCPY2SUB \USR\SMITH\BLANKMEM.DOC
the result will be that BLANKMEM.DOC will be copied
to all subdirectories of \GRP\DOC (like
\GRP\DOC\AL, \GRP\DOC\BRENDA, \GRP\DOC\CARL, ...)

Sample usages: distribution of configuration/document files to
individual subdirectories that are below current working
subdirectory;
Note: This utility in the past was very useful for it was a
quick way to copy the PRINTCON.DAT (Print Job Configuration
file) to all users but now the utility NMANPCON does a much
better job of this.


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Syntax Error.
8 - Unable to find specified file.
6 - Error writing destination file.
0 - Normal Exit.























Page 13



NDATEDIR


NDATEDIR Drive:\Subdirectory


This utility will set all files in the current working
subdirectory (or specified in the command line) to the current
Date/Time stamp.

Sample usages: Files that you want to always to be archived by
the backup software; mark document subdirectories with all
the same date/time stamp;

(specially useful for those important databases that you want
to ensure that they are completely backed up even during
incremental backup sessions)


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Syntax Error.
8 - Error accessing home subdirectory.
7 - Error accessing specified subdirectory.
0 - Normal Exit.




























Page 14



NDELFILE

NDELFILE Drive:\Path FileMask


This utility will delete all files matching the specified
FileMask starting at the specified Drive:Path subdirectory and
all its nested subdirectories.
The FileMask can be composed of Wildcard (?,*) characters.

This utility can be used in a batchfile or interactively.
If interactive, then typing NDELFILE, alone will display a
prompt for the desired subdirectory structure and the specified
filemask(filename). If batch, then you will need to type the
specified Drive:\Path and FileMask in the command line when
executing NDELFILE.

Warning! This utility will not verify if the file should or
should not be deleted. (It will simply do what you told it).

Usages; Delete those .BAK and other backup files that are left by
user programs, so to save diskspace; run this process
after doing a full backup of the server; run this process
if a maintenance robot (ei. NDISK.EXE) finds that
diskspace is very low;

Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Syntax Error.
7 - Unable to find specified subdirectory.
6 - Encountered error when changing subdirectories
1 - Found no files to delete.
0 - Normal Exit.




















Page 15



NDELPRNJ


NDELPRNJ QueueName UserName


This utility will delete all Print Jobs created by UserName.
The user executing this utility must have sufficient rights to
delete print jobs.
If only the QueueName is specified, then all Print Jobs that
the user has security rights can be deleted for the specified
queue.
If the QueueName and UserName is specified, then all Print Jobs
for the specified Queue and UserName are deleted.

Sample usages: Allow users delete their active print jobs by
selecting an option in your menuing system; Delete all
hung(Out of Paper, Printer OffLine, ...) PrintJobs so that
the Backup Machine (usually after Midnight) may backup the
File Server without waiting forever on the queue files to
close (so this way, also backing up the queue directory
structures);


Returned Error Codes are:

9 - Syntax Error.
8 - Must be Logged In.
7 - Unable to find specified queue.
6 - Unable to find specified username.
5 - Insufficent Queue Rights.
4 - Unable to access PrintJob List.
2 - Specified Queue is empty.
1 - Deleted available PrintJobs.
0 - Normal Exit.

NDISK


NDISK Drive:

This utility will display the total capacity and available disk
space of specified drive. The available disk space will also
be returned as an errorlevel in increments of 1 Megabyte (1024
* 1024 bytes). The maximum exitlevel returned is 255.

Sample usages: help alert the administrator to low disk space
available; placed in a batch file will automatically
delete redundant files if disk space is low;

NDOSVER


NDOSVER
If errorlevel 5 echo DOS 5 or later found
If errorlevel 4 echo DOS 4 or later found
if errorlevel 3 echo DOS 3 or later found
if errorlevel 2 echo DOS 2 or later found


This utility will return the major dos version as a errorlevel
exit code. This is useful for batch files that need to call
specific programs based on the DOS version.
Sample Use: Load the correct version of NETx.COM,







































Page 18



NEMSMEM


NEMSMEM


This program will return the amount of Expanded Memory (EMS)
available. It will return the amount 10K increments as an
ExitLevel. For example, if NEMSMEM found 2304K available, then
it will return with an exitlevel of 230. The maximum exitlevel
that can be returned is 255.

Sample Usages: Insert before a application call in a batch
file, and if there isn't enough memory available, then
goto the appropriate message in the batch file;






































Page 19



NEQUA


NEQUA ObjectName


This utility will return an errorlevel of 0, if the current
user is a Security Equivalent of specified ObjectName.
ExitLevel 1, if it is not equivalent.

Sample Usage: batch files can be tuned to specific types of
users;


Sample: NEQUA SUPERVISOR
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 THEN GOTO (normal user)
super-batch-stuff




































Page 20



NGETTIME


NGETTIME


This utility will display the current date / time on all
attached servers. This will help you decide if you need to run
NSETTIME.


Returned Error Codes are:

1 - User must be logged in.
0 - Normal Exit.






































Page 21



NGROUP


NGROUP GroupName


This utility will return an errorlevle of 0, if the current
user is a member of specified GroupName.

ExitLevel 1, if it is not a member.

Sample Usage: batch files can be tuned to specific types of
users;


Sample: NGROUP BTRIEVE
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 THEN GOTO (normal user)
load Brequest
other Btrieve specifics


Sample: NGROUP ANTIVIRUS
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 THEN GOTO (skip this section)
run antivirus





























Page 22



NLIST


NLIST /P

/P is optional command, it will pause the screen every 25 lines
so that you may 'page' thru the output text.

The purpose of this utility so that you can get an overview of
the status of the servers on your internetwork. It will
display the names, netware version, and network address of all
servers. It will also give a summary of the connections in use
for those servers that you are logged in. This very useful if
you have any Hewlett Packard Network Interface cards, or
Castelle Print Server equipment, for it will display
connections that have defined in PCONSOLE but are not OnLine.

For Example, when the utility executes, it sees that you have
defined 4 Print Servers on a (logged on) FileServer. It will
check to see if those 4 Print Servers are attached to the File
Server, and if they are not it will display the Print Server's
name on the screen.

Also, if you configure special access users (like Supervisor,
MHS, FAX, Super, ...), with a FullName that starts with a -
(minus) then NLIST will display these UserNames if they are
logged in. (This is handy to check if your special accounts
are currently operational.)


Exit Codes:
9 - Network driver not loaded or too old.
2 - Could not attach to a File Server.
1 - One or more PrintServers are not attached.
0 - Success


















Page 23



NLOGADDR


NLOGADDR Drive:Path\FileName /N

/N is optional command, that will ask the user to type in a 30
character description of this workstation.

This utility will get physical address of UserName and insert
this information into the specified database FileName.

Sample usages: Track login usage at the workstation level;
trace program usage by physical station; trace previous logins
at work station; track usage of work stations; track
workstation conditions; allows the network administrator a
quick way to find who had been lately accessing the event by a
specific workstation;

Example placed in a batch file:
NDISK C:
IF ERRORLEVEL 2 NLOGADDR F:\WARNINGS\LOWDISK.LST
IF C:\WP\WP.EXE NLOGADDR F:\INVENT\WPUSER.TXT

The database file is in a fixed format cr/lf text file, so
hence the administrator can do searches/lookup using any text
editor.

Page 24



NLOGEVT


NLOGEVT Command Drive:\Path\DataName

Command choices:

B Begin Date/Time Event for workstation
(log to specified DataFile)
E End Date/Time Event for current workstation
(log to specified DataFile)
R Create user (summary and sorted) usage report
for specified DataFile.

This utility will track usage of events. These events could
range anywhere from keeping track of user login time to
application utilization. The data will be kept in the
specified datafile (random-access fixed-field text-file). This
raw file can be view or printed by the network administrator.

For example, you may want to keep track of who and how often
endusers will execute a specific application. So, in this case
you would begin the event (ei: NLOGEVT B APP1) before you
execute the application. Then, in your batch file, you would
end the event (ei: NLOGEVT E APP1) after you have finished the
application. Later, when you view (or do a report) on the
specified log file (ei: NLOGEVT R APP1), you would see some
usage stats on the User, like:
Address Physical Address that the enduser was at when
the application was ran.
LoginName LoginName of the enduser that accessed the
specified event.
StartDate Start date of the event for the displayed
loginname and station.
StartTime Start time of the event for the displayed
loginname and station.
EndDate End date of the event for the displayed
loginname and station.
EndTime End time of the event for the displayed
loginname and station.
Abends Number of times that the enduser rebooted or
otherwise did not EndEvent (ei:NLOG E APPNAME)
after running the application. Or, another
words, the number of times that the utility was
told to Begin an event that already had started.
Event Count Number of times that an event occurred, hence,
the number of times that an enduser had accessed
the specified event.
Event Amount Total number of hours that the specified event
has accumulated.



Page 25



NLOGMSG

NLOGMSG Drive:Pathname\DateFileName MessageString

This utility is normally used in batch files, to record(log) an
event or error that has taken place. The user gives the
utility the FileName and a Message. The 'Message' will be
appended to the end of the FileName(log) file, along with the
LoginName, NetworkNode, Date, and Time of the event.

Example contents: (depending on creator of batchfile)

DARWIN 00003349844A 02/13/92 15:30 Exited to DOS Prompt
KEVIN 0348484848B3 02/13/92 16:00 Found outdated NETX


The structure of the appended record is:

LoginName 15 char
Network Node Address 13 char
Date 9 char
Time 9 char
Message Text 32 char

Record is 80 characters including the CR(x0D) and LF(x0A).


Note:
Message String may have quotes around the text.

NMANPCON


Note: Probably you are using that SMODE trick so that you can
use a master printcon.dat, but since it different then the
standard operating environment, you may already been bit by the
weaknesses of the system. Well, this utility allows you to
keep using a master file, without applications flaking out on
you. Also, this approach allows smart applications using the
standard operating environment to capitalize on the individual
print job configurations.
I mean like why display a PrintJob Names to users that don't
have the access to use them, huh? Well, anyone way, this
utility is to help big shops standardize.


NMANPCON [UserName or GroupName] This is Great !

NMANPCON BRENDA Create new printer configuration file
for User BRENDA.
NMANPCON EVERYONE Create a new printer configuration
file for all users that are a member
of group EVERYONE.


This utility will first copy the Supervisor's PRINTCON.DAT to
specified users, and then for each user, it will remove job
configurations that the individual user does not have
sufficient security access. (not a member of Queue User).
So, hence, if you are using this with the utility NSELPRNJ, you
never have to explain about JobNames that the users don't have
access to, because they simply aren't displayed.

Also, this will enable you to not worry about going through the
PRINTCON routine for all your users whenever a new jobname,
printer, or other changes are required. Now, just set up the
supervisor's (or supervisor equivalent) printcon configuration
the way you like it, and then run this utility. All users will
then have a correct printcon file.

You would need to only run this utility if:
. Modified the supervisor's PRINTCON.DAT file and want it
to effect other users.
If it only effects a specific group, do:
NMANPCON GroupName
else, if it effects everyone, then do:
NMANPCON EVERYONE
. Added a new user, and so you want to create the user's
PRINTCON.DAT configuration from the master copy.
Do: NMANPCON NewUserName
and thats it!


Page 27


Sample Usages: Make maintaining printcon.dat files a breeze,
for you only have to maintain on master copy; used in

NMHS2TXT

NMHS2TXT.EXE is renamed to OUTPOST.EXE when it is copied to the
defined gateway's PUBLIC subdirectory.

MHS will execute this utility when it sends Email to the
Gateway's OUT sub,and convert the Email message to a (word
wrapped) text file called OUTPOST.TXT in
\MHS\MAIL\GATES\(GatewayName)\OUT subdirectory. Then, the
utility will shell and execute the NMHS2TXT.BAT file that you
have created in the \MHS\MAIL\GATES\(GatewayName)\PUBLIC
subdirectory.

Sample Usage; Useful in multiple MHS locations when
automatically transfering text files on a routine basis.
For example: An MHS location creates a daily company report
and is Emailed to all member MHS sites. At the receiving site,
the Email message will be converted to a text file and placed
in a common subdirectory for all to access. (This is good for:
1-can be done automatically at any frequency/time of day,
2-reduces harddisk space needed to store one document instead
of multiple email messages... ) .


To Install:

Create a new GateWay in MHS's Directory Manager section.
Note: Do not create a Gateway command.

Add the GateWay name to 'User Routes' in MHS's Directory
Manager.

COPY NMHS2TXT.EXE to
\mhs\mail\gates\(GatewayName)\public\OUTPOST.EXE

Note: Yes, it should be called OUTPOST.EXE in this
subdirectory.

Create a NMHS2TXT.BAT in \MHS\MAIL\GATES\(GatewayName)\PUBLIC
This batch could copy the file to the desired location or
other things.
Note: FileName NMHS2TXT.EXE must not exist in this same
PUBLIC sub.
A sample can be found in the SAMPLES.ZIP file.

Now, whenever you send a message to GateWayName @ GateWayName,
the utility will make it a text file and allow you to
manipulate it.

NRPTMHSU


NRPTMHSU Drive:\SubDirectory

Drive:\Subdirectory would most likely be F:\MHS\MAIL\USERS
or similar that points to MHS's mail subdirectories.

This utility was created so that the Network Administrator can
keep track of message traffic and disk space consumption of MHS
mail messages. Especially, since a message can take 4K bytes
of disk space, it doesn't take many to result in a diskspace
full message.

Sample usage is NRPTMHSU H:\MHS\MAIL\USERS

Output will consist of:

Sent Yesterday Files that have been created in the
user's MHS mail directory on the
previous date of this utility
execution.
This utility will also count deleted
(but still salvagable files) that
existed in this directory.
So, hence, the count may be below
actual value.
Sent Today Files that have been created in the
user's MHS mail directory on the same
date of this utility execution.
This utility will also count deleted
(but still salvagable files) that
existed in this directory.
So, hence, the count may be below
actual value.

It will return the amount 10K increments as an ExitLevel. For
example, if NXMSMEM found 2304K available, then it will return
with an exitlevel of 230.
The maximum exitlevel returned is 255.

Sample Usages: Insert before a application call in a batch
file, and if there isn't enough memory available, then
goto the appropriate message in the batch file; if there
is enough XMS memory then load the protected version of
the application instead of the real mode version; avoid
the maintenance headache of keeping multiple AUTOEXEC.BAT
and CONFIG.SYS files for different machines;

For example:

Use it to load the XMSNETx instead of the NETx shell.
