The DOS Protected Mode Interface (often DPMI) was a standard of how DOS extenders should function under MS-DOS so that you can run protected mode DOS applications under a DPMI provider, like Windows 3.0 and higher.

There is some information on the DPMI spec on DJGPP's site.

DPMI also succeeded the VCPI specification.
