EBREAK v1.4 - enhanced break - TLG Software

Usage: ebreak [-q]
installs ebreak, (without copyright message if -q flag set).

EBREAK is a resident program that makes the Ctrl-Break key "stronger",
so that it will even break out of tight loops which don't involve DOS

NOTE: When Ctrl-Break is hit the interrupts below 40H are all
reset to their values as of when the program was installed.
Therefore, if you are installing resident programs which grab
these interrupts they should be installed BEFORE this program.
This program uses int 09H and int 1BH.

Ctrl-Break resets the system timer to run at the normal rate,
and restores the video mode to the state it was in when EBREAK
was installed. The interrupt mask is also restored.
