=========== POPANY Help ==============================================

Below is the list presented when you enter:

POPANY ?=

at the DOS prompt.


POPANY.EXE Command Line Switches

?= This help screen
G= This switch should only be used if you intend to invoke the secondary
DOS while you are currently within a graphics display. Its usage will
cause an additional 16K of memory to be allocated for the saving and
restoration of the graphics memory. This memory cannot be recovered
without rebooting the system.
I=xxx This is the invocation key scan code switch. If the default invoke
key of ALT-F10 is undesirable, use this switch where xxx is the
decimal number of the extended code you wish to use to invoke POPANY.
M=xxx This is the memory allocation switch. POPANY will not allocate any
memory until you tell it to do so. If you do not use this switch at
loading, you will be prompted for an amount. The minimum amount is
1K. This, along with the transient portion of COMMAND.COM, will
actually give you about 16K of work space.
R= This is the Risky switch. Setting this switch will save about 6K,
but may cause POPANY to not be compatible with some of your
applications. Most applications and DOS commands (including FORMAT,
DIR, FIND, etc.) will run with the Risky switch set.
