2F2780CL06

Category: memory management
Flags: Undocumented function

INT 2F - Novell DOS 7 - EMM386.EXE - MULTITASKING API - DPMI SERVICES

	AX = 2780h
	CL = 06h
	CH = function
	    00h "F_InitDPMI" used for internal initialization
	    01h "F_DescAllocLDT" allocate LDT descriptor
	    02h "F_DescFreeLDT" free LDT descriptor
	    03h "F_DescGetLDT" get details on LDT descriptor
	    04h "F_DescSetLDT" set up LDT descriptor
	    05h "F_DescAllocInt21" allocate descriptor for PM INT 21
	    06h "F_WhereIsDPMI" get address of DPMI global data
Return: ???
Notes:	called by DPMS.EXE and EMM386.EXE
	the handler for this function may be set by one of the subfunctions
	  of AX=2780h/CL=01h; the default handler returns AX=BX=FFFFh and
	  CX=0001h (see #02739)
	this API is only available if AX=12FFh/BX=0EDCh returns successfully;
	  because the request is handled on the initial trap to the memory
	  manager caused by INT instructions, this API must be invoked with
	  an actual INT 2F instruction instead of some simulation such as a
	  far call to the address in the interrupt vector table
