Function : Events
EventQueueAlloc - Create an event queue.

#include <event.h>

    char far *QueueName);
Description :

Create an event queue with the given name, to be used by user-defined event consumers and user-defined event producers. Each event consumer must call EventQueueAlloc at startup.

Use EventQueueFree to delete the event queue and deallocate the memory associated with it.

Parameters : Input : QueueName - pointer to a null-terminated character string specifying the name to be assigned to this queue. Maximum length of QueueName (including null terminator) is 32 characters.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call -- indicates either success or what the error is. The return codes include:

NOERROR ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level functions. There are so many possible causes, that It is best to use the code in a call to OSLoadString and display/log the error for the user.
