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

  Parameters  

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.

  TECH Notes  

  This is equivalent to calling DOS fn 3301H.

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