BREAK= (CONFIG.SYS Command)
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).
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.
■ This is equivalent to calling DOS fn 3301H.
■ Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Break are handled by INT 23H.
