Command: loadhigh (lh)
LOADHIGH loads a program into the upper memory area.
Since LOADHIGH loads the program into high memory there
remains more free space in low or conventional memory
for other programs.
LOADHIGH is a BATCH-FILE / AUTOEXEC.BAT command.
It can also be used in command line.
LOADHIGH [drive][path]filename [parameters]
LOADHIGH [/L:region1[,minsize1][;region2[,minsize2]...] [/S] [/?]]
drive The drive letter, e.g. C:
path The directory, e.g. \example\
filename The name of the program to load into the upper
memory area, e.g. edit.exe
Specifies the region(s) of memory into which to load
the program. Region1 specifies the number of the first
memory region; minsize1 specifies the minimum size, if
any, for region1. Region2 and minsize2 specify the
number and minimum size of the second region, if any.
You can specify as many regions as you want.
/S Shrinks a UMB to its minimum size while the program is
/? Shows the help
parameters These are the options to the program that you are loading.
LOADHIGH can also be used outside a batch file.
To load up a driver or a program into high memory you first
have to load a driver like HIMEM, HIMEMX, JEMMEX, EMM386
or JEMM386 in config.sys. You can also use LH instead of LOADHIGH.
LOADHIGH is a command internal to command.com
and needs no other file in order to work.
