Abstract

This invention allows paging of Work Station Emulation (WSE) information to and from its hardware on a high performance demand basis, therefore, reducing the IBM PC (personal computer) memory requirements. (Image Omitted) There are several types of hardware available that provide PC memory swapping. This hardware provides a PC memory-saving technique without burdening the customer with the additional expense of the memory-swapping hardware. This hardware requires no additional hardware other than the already-purchased WSE communications card. The current method saves up to 80 KB of PC memory. It is re-entrant to support multiple simultaneous paging requests.
