NUMLOCK= (CONFIG.SYS Command)

                                                         Compatibility: 6.0+

 Purpose: Sets the state of keyboard "NumLock".  When NumLock is OFF, the

          numeric keypad can be used as arrow keys for cursor movement.



    Uses: ■ Preset the keyboard for use with screen-oriented programs which

            use the arrow keys for cursor control.

          ■ Set up so that MultiConfig Menus will work intuitively; that

            is, so the user can use the arrow keys to move the cursor bar

            (without needing to first press the NumLock key).



  Syntax: NUMLOCK=ON or OFF



█ŢParametersŮ█



       ON sets the keyboard into Numlock mode; keys on the numeric keyboard

          will represent numbers.



      OFF runs off Numlock mode; keys on the numeric keyboard represent

          cursor-control arrows.



█ŢTECH NotesŮ█



  ■ This sets or clears bit 5 of 0040:0017 (see Keyboard Flags and

    BIOS Data Area).
