In debugging a program that uses LIM EMS memory, I had a bug that was
bypassing the normal call to release all LIM EMS handles in memory in
the normal exit proceedure sequence. I got tired of rebooting the
machine to get my EMS memory back, so I wrote this little utility which
helped me to trace the problem. Necessity is the mother of invention.

This utility will release an EMS handle trapped in memory. The command
line is EMSREL . The program will display status
of the release and will not accept invalid handles. If you have
Borland's professional development package then use TDMEM to display the
handle numbers.
