I'm sorry, from the very beginning I don't know how to use it.

You're right, it's non-productive, but since Jack totally pissed off
by Eric, he refuse to disclose any detail, even I cannot help.

All I can say is too late, once upon a time UDMA and XDMA is open
source, but he was greatly upset so he closed the source.

Now he keep on working on it IS request by many users, otherwise he

QHIMEM was written from scratch, with "refer" to MS-source, so there

I did not "model" QHIMEM after Microsoft HIMEM V2.03, like you know.
QHIMEM's source or binary files are very different from V2.03 HIMEM.
Disassemblies may only confuse folks.   But they are welcome to try.
