  I posted this awhile back, and it worked fine.  Note that
this is with TurboC v1.5!  First, I created the C obj file,
using the medium memory model.  Then I made a short basic
program to call the function.  I passed cm.lib to QB's
link, and it read it just fine.

  The TurboC code:

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

  The QB program:

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