Phantom setup strings in WARP 4


There are some setup strings for DOS and WinOS/2 sessions documented in 
the OS/2 WARP 4 Online help that make their way only into the online help. 

A maybe incomplete list of these is : 
   *  DOS_NUMLOCK 
   *  DOS_SWITCHES 
   *  DOS_BUFFERS 
   *  VIDEO_BUFFER_USAGE 
   *  BIOS_TYPE 
   *  DOS_CODEPAGE 
   *  DOS_COUNTRY 
   *  DOS_INSTALL 
   *  DOS_LANGUAGE 
   *  DOS_SET 
   *  DOS_STACKS 
   *  FEP_MODE 
   *  IDLE_MAX_SLEEP_TIME 
   *  IDLE_TIMEOUT 
   *  TRANSLATED_CACHE_SIZE 
 
 According to some information exchanged on the Internet, these are new 
 DOS settings that were written for "OS/2 for the PowerPC" version.  But 
 they were never added to the Intel version of OS/2 (and probably never 
 will be). Even though you can see the information in the online 
 documentation, you won't find the settings in the settings notebook.
