Hi! I want to create a DOS-based screensaver with NASM
and have two issues: 1. I need info on programming the EGA
graphics adapter; and 2. I need a EGA graphics library for
NASM. I think the PCGPE has the former, and I'm willing to
create the latter. I'm looking for EGA-specific info though.
T. Ment, I thank you for the information. I put it on my mother's
eBay watch list to purchase when her computer starts working. :(
My plans are to create a DOS screen saver using NASM on EGA
and stuff it in EMS with a stub in Upper memory.

Why not use XMS instead. HIMEM.SYS provides that.
The only reason to use EMS is for 8086 EMS hardware board, where no XMS
is available. They're rare now, worth some money in working condition.
I want to put code in EMS. I can save the current EMS settings,
bank in 64k of my screen saver, call the code, reset the EMS
settings then return. I can't put code in XMS. That's why. :)
