SPECIAL NOTES FOR MICROSOFT QUICKBASIC(R) USERS
============================================================

When using ADDMEM.COM with QuickBASIC, there are several
things that you must know to achieve optimum use. There are
also several things you need to know so you don't potentially
lock up your system.


THINGS YOU SHOULD DO
====================

When you initially load the editor, be sure to add the "/G"
command line option to your normal command line option(s).
An example would be:

QB /G
QBX /G

This option forces QuickBASIC to use direct screen writes
within the editor. For some reason, ADDMEM inhibits the
automatic usage of this option. If you don't use this
option, you will notice that the screen gets updated a little
slower.



THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT DO
========================

The following BASIC commands should not be used while ADDMEM
is resident:

WIDTH 40
WIDTH 80
PALETTE
SCREEN 2 (or anything above)

"PALETTE" may or may not work on VGA systems. Try it and see
if it works for your system.

It is ALWAYS safe to use SCREEN to switch the "APAGE" and
"VPAGE" options, but do not attempt to switch into any other
video mode except mode 1.
