Although it seem contradictory, HIMEM.SYS supports both Quiet (/Q) and
Verbose (/VERBOSE or /V) switches.
Without either switch specified on the DEVICE= command in the
CONFIG.SYS file, HIMEM.SYS displays only one message during system
startup (unless an error occurs):
HIMEM is testing extended memory...
If you specify the Quiet switch, no messages are displayed at system
startup unless an error occurs.
If you specify the Verbose switch, HIMEM.SYS displays all status and
error messages while loading.
