When you run MS-DOS in 40-column mode, numerical output in directory
listings does not contain comma support.
In 40-column mode, at most, 39 characters can be displayed before
line-wrapping occurs. With comma support added, directory listings are
43 characters wide. To prevent directory listings from wrapping in 40-
column mode, MS-DOS disables comma support.
