Category: DOS kernel
Flags: callout or callback (usually hooked rather than called), Undocumented function
INT 2F - Novell DOS 7+ FDOS EXTENSIONS - ALLOCATE CLUSTER
AX = 1005h
BX = block from which to start search (e.g. current end of file)
0000h = start of disk
Return: AX or BX??? = allocated cluster (already marked as End of Chain)
or 0000h if none available
Notes: This private function is called internally by the OS kernel to
ask the FDOS to allocate disk space. By using the
INT 2F/AX=1001h FDOS hook, the call can be intercepted by external
system components such as the DELWATCH TSR.
This function must under no circumstances be called by applications!
