so, first off, which OS are you intending to code for?

Windows XP


in this case:
the example you gave, isn't even close to what you would be looking for.

reason:
MS-DOS works *completely* different than any modern OS;
DOS-specific examples are, thus, essentially totally worthless in this case.

You are *completely* wrong here. Windows XP (at least in the 32 bit version)
fully supports the int21 interface. There is absolutely no need to use the
Win32 DLL interface to the OS for a program which dumps the last 128 bytes of
a file. The good old int21 interface provides anything you need and is much
easier to use.
