        INT 2E - Execute Command Using Base Level Command Interpreter
                           (Undocumented DOS 2.0+)

       DS:SI = pointer to command string to be executed

       returns nothing ???

       - causes the base level COMMAND.COM to execute a command as if it
         were typed from the keyboard
       - the transient portion of COMMAND.COM must be loaded if not resident
       - first byte of the string contains the string length, inclusive
       - command string must be terminated with a CR
       - all registers including SS & SP are destroyed;  SS & SP should be
         preserved in your own code segment
       - can be used to modify parents environment with SET command
       - incompatible under some software multitasking systems
       - before returning to the parent program this interrupt will
         attempt to execute the "current" batch file (if the parent or
         any ancestors were invoked from a batch file.   This can cause
         remaining lines in a batch file to execute before the parent
         program finishes and fragment memory
