AX = 4402h
BX = file handle for device "386MAX$$"
CX = number of bytes to read
DS:DX -> BYTE 03h followed by 386MAX state buffer (see #01467)
Return: CF clear if successful
buffer at DS:DX+1 filled
AX = number of bytes actually copied
CF set on error
AX = error code (01h,05h,06h,0Dh) (see #01680 at AH=59h/BX=0000h)
Notes: if the value given in CX is less than the size of the state record
(5Ah for v6.01, 66h for v7.00), only a partial state record will be
the state is 40h bytes for 386MAX (actually ASTEMM) v2.20 ("386MAX$$"
did not exist yet, use "QMMXXXX0" and then "EMMXXXX0" instead) and
56h bytes for v5.11.
to invoke 386MAX API functions, push DX onto the stack, load DX with
the word at offset 25h in the returned state, load all other
registers as needed for the desired function, and execute an
OUT DX,AL or OUT DX,AX; DX will be set to the pushed value on return
if it is not otherwise modified by the API function. For safety,
in case a function is not supported or 386MAX is not present, SP
should be saved and restored around the API call.
Windows 3.1 Standard mode, LAN Manager, and Windows for Workgroups all
use the 386MAX API; LAN Manager and Windows for Workgroups reportedly
make some calls incorrectly
