    no DOS?

    If you don't have DOS you should try posting in the Linux section (assuming that's what you have) because there you could get a speedy answer, what OS do you have?

    If you mean available everywhere then no. Something like that would be standard, and the standard cannot make any assumtions about the underlying hardware. You may be able to find a portable library somewhere, but whether one exists or not is the question.
