2164--DX0008

Category: other operating systems
Flags: Undocumented function

INT 21 - OS/2 v2.1+ Virtual DOS Machine - GET LOADING MESSAGE

	AH = 64h
	DX = 0008h (function number)
	CX = 636Ch (magic value, "cl")
	BX = 0000h (indicates special request)
Return: DS:DX -> '$'-terminated message "Loading.  Please wait."
Notes:	if CX is not 636Ch on entry, INT 21/AH=6Ch is invoked, because a bug
	  in OS/2 1.x FAPI erroneously called AH=64h instead of AH=6Ch
	this function permits National Language Support for the initial message
	  displayed while WinOS2 starts a full-screen session
