Starting the DOS Editor with Optional Switches

When you start the DOS Editor, four special parameter switches are available. These switches are listed in Table 15.7.

Table 15.7. Optional Switches for the EDIT Command
Switch Description
/B Displays the DOS Editor in black and white, even when a color graphics adapter is present.
/G Updates Editor screens as quickly as possible on systems with CGA (Color Graphics Adapter) video. (Note: Some computer systems cannot support this option. If screen flicker occurs when you choose /G, your hardware is not compatible with this option. Also, any system with VGA or better does not need to use this option.)
/H Displays the maximum number of lines possible with your video hardware. EGA (Enhanced Graphics Adapter) and VGA (Video Graphics Array) systems can produce more than the standard number of lines onscreen.
/NOHI Effectively displays the Editor on monitors that do not support high intensity.
