BREAK= (CONFIG.SYS Command)

                                                         Compatibility: 1.0+

 Purpose: Sets how often DOS checks for Ctrl+Break (Ctrl+C).



          A similar command can be executed in batch files or at the DOS

          command prompt (the Break command).



  Syntax: BREAK=ON

      or: BREAK=OFF



█ŢParametersŮ█



      OFF (default setting) DOS checks for Ctrl+Break only during console

          or printer I/O (while getting keyboard input, displaying text on

          the screen, or outputting to the printer).



       ON DOS checks for Ctrl+Break more often, including during disk I/O.



          The default setting is BREAK=OFF.



█ŢTECH NotesŮ█



  ■ This is equivalent to calling DOS fn 3301H.



  ■ Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Break are handled by INT 23H.
