Subj: Linking TC routines            Conf: (2) Quik_Bas
  Someone was asking the other day if TurboC routines could
be linked into QB.  Although this was done with v1.5 of
TurboC, it ought to work with newer versions.  I picked a
real simple function that just returns the state of the DOS
verify flag.

  First, the C routine:

  #include "dos.h"
  int verify ()
   return getverify();

  Of course the above was compiled with the medium memory
model to be compatible with QB.

  The BASIC source:

  PRINT "Status of the dos verify flag is "; verify%

  When link asked for the library name, I fed it cm.lib
which is the medium memory model lib for TC.  Works fine.
Since I'm not passing any arguments, the CDECL may not be
required in this example.
