   DOS Interrupts &h21, functions 4E and 4F will do the trick. For examples
on how to use these in QB, I'd recommend finding the first
(I believe) of the QBNews series from a local bbs. The file
name will be something like QBNWS101.ZIP. If the code in
question isn't in that issue, download all of 'em. Believe
me, they're all worth getting and reading. Lot's of nice
stuff. If you can't find it, ask Dave Cleary on this echo
about getting copies... he's the editor.
