Hi Experts,

I have stumbled across source code (in assembly) to clear the MBR area of a hard drive. This little code would come in handy in my line of work. But it's now in "debug" routine, and I was thinking of compiling it to a .com file so that I can run it directly from DOS.

I haven't touched assembly language programming for a while, and I have forgotten about interrupt routines, eg: AH 4C, INT21 to exit the program.

In debug, I also need to assemble (A) then write (W) to file. If I post the actual source code, can someone help me compile it to a .com file?

Thanks in advance.
