INT 2F - DOS 4.0+ APPEND - SET RETURN FOUND NAME STATE

	AX = B711h
Note:	if the next INT 21h call (and ONLY the next) is function 3Dh, 43h, or
	  6Ch (also 4B03h and 4Eh if /X active), the fully qualified filename
	  is written over top of the filename passed to the INT 21h call.  The
	  application must provide a sufficiently large buffer.	 This state is
	  reset after the next INT 21h call processed by APPEND.
	APPEND uses the byte at offset 3Dh in the PSP
	  (see #01378 at INT 21/AH=26h) to store the flag telling it to
	  overwrite the filename
BUG:	DOS 4.0 APPEND reportedly overwrites DS:DX instead of DS:SI for
	  INT 21/AH=6Ch
SeeAlso: INT 21/AH=26h,INT 21/AH=4Eh
