INT 10H 12H BL=20H: Select Alternate Print Screen Handler
Compatibility: EGA VGA
Expects: AH 12H
Info: This redirects the INT 05H (print screen) vector to a handler
within the EGA/VGA ROM-BIOS.
On older PCs, XTs, and ATs, the default ROM-BIOS print-screen
handler stops printing after 25 lines. The EGA/VGA handler
correctly prints the number of lines specified in the byte at
0040:0084 in the BIOS Data Area.
Notes: Most EGAs and VGAs set this automatically. However, it is good
practice to use this fn whenever you change the number of video
lines that are displayed in text mode.
