 Actually, if you can find SWAP300 on a local board, here
is my
interface for it. If you would like the OBJ, I can UUENCODE it.
        Swap300 is about an 83k file you probably can find locally.
        And this rotuine may NOT be published in any form without
written consent. However you may use it freely.


Here is my batch file to compile it into a lib/qlb.

del swap.qlb
del swap.obj
del swap.lib
tasm /mx /JMASM51 /D_Medium /Dall SWAP,,swap;
tasm /mx PDSSWAP,,pdsswap;
LIB swap.lib + swap + pdsswap + \lang\bc7\lib\qbx.lib;
LINK /Q swap.lib, swap.qlb,,\lang\bc7\lib\qbxqlb.lib;

And here is PDSWAP.ASM
