Hi all,

I have a rather noobish question. When you call Int 0x12 in realmode, it returns the memory size in AX. My problem is, how do I get this value into a string, and ultimately, on the screen. I can't put it in AL and call the teletype function, as this is a 16-bit value, and AL is only 8 bits.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Anthony

This is, again, a question on integer outputting, i.e., printing the value of AX.

Also, I suggest you take a look at the DOS FAQs.
