To find out, let's build the simple DOS application in Example 1-1, which uses one of the new long filename APIs (the source and executable for this example are in the DOSVOL directory of the companion disk). For brevity, Example 1-1 does not display the implementations of several support routines such as GetStartupDrive(), GetVolInfo(), etc. These are small C functions that contain inline assembler Int 21h calls. This little application prints the MS-DOS version and, if Windows is detected, the Windows version as well.
