Purpose:
Here's a couple tiny utilities for turning on or off the internal cache
of a 486 Processor. These are mainly useful for turning off the cache for
older programs that don't behave correctly with the internal cache turned on.

CACHEOFF.COM - turns off and invalidates the internal cache.
CACHEON.COM - turns on the internal cache.


Example:
One program I have that these are useful for is Red Baron (the only
flight simulator I've ever liked - except for Sopwith of course). The FM
sound doesn't work properly on my computer with the cache on, so I created a
batch file to turn the cache off, run the game, then turn the cache back on.
