 You haven't checked mine :-)

 (If you do, remember that first-time callers don't have access to the QB
 file area until they fill in the questionnaire; also don't waste your time
 with the 'Yell' command: the 'C' program that it invokes to artificial-chat
 you is kinda rude - not unlike looking at 'C' code for the first time).
 Your best bet is to File Request it if you can, as QBSWAP.ZIP.  It contains
 the .ASM source, as well as SWAP.OBJ and FSWAP.OBJ (the first one is for QB
 near strings, the second one for PDS far strings), and some notes on how to
 call it in your QB program.

 Note that I haven't had much success with swapping from the QB environment,
 but it works really well when linked to standalone objects to make a .EXE.
 Just remember to place SWAP.OBJ *first* in the list of programs to link.
