EATMEM

EATMEM is a small program that is useful only to software developers. It is a TSR that consumes a specified amount of memory. Developers can use it to simulate a system with less memory, or to create a buffer zone between an application and programs preceding it.

The memory used by EATMEM can be freed only by using MARK and RELEASE.

Call EATMEM with a single command line parameter, specifying the (decimal) number of KILOBYTES to eat up:


  EATMEM KiloBytesToEat

Example:

EATMEM 10

consumes 10 Kilobytes (K) of memory.

EATMEM will allow you to eat up all available memory, leading to a system crash when COMMAND.COM cannot be reloaded. Be sure to calculate how much memory to use before calling EATMEM.
