 P.S. From another author than the one who wrote the above.
      The routine above is excellent, however I had a different version
      of PFS FILE and PFS REPORT.  If you dont find the locations listed
      above try these:

 PFS FILE   TYPE -> U 9223  YOU SHOULD SEE  PUSH BP
                                            MOV AX,DS
                                            MOV ES,AX
                                      (ETC)
 IF SO TYPE -> E 9228 EB 2B
       TYPE -> W
       TYPE -> Q
 AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN ABOVE ABOUT RENAME ETC.

 PFS REPORT  TYPE -> U 988F  YOU SHOULD SEE PUSH BP
                                            MOV AX,DS
                                            MOV ES,AX
                                      (ETC)
 IF SO TYPE -> E 9894 EB 2B
       TYPE -> W
       TYPE -> Q
 AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN ABOVE ABOUT RENAME & ETC.

 My thanks to the original author who worked so hard to help us.
 Please use these routines for your own use. I needed to add DOS 2.1
 and place these programs on double sided disks.  Don't rip off these
 software manufacturers.
