Re: Memory and SCSI Controller drivers

As many of you I am going through the struggle of getting the most out of my MS-DOS memory, but due to a SCSI Controller (Adaptec) I am using 2 drivers that are killing my memory: ASPI7DOS.SYS - Is taking 25Kb of memory ASPICD.SYS - Is taking an additional 12Kb And this is before I load MSCDEX that …

Re: Retro Software Development?

If all people want to do is ask questions for their own projects then currently milliways works. It doesn't really work for me, because there's so much else going on in that forum I rarely ever look at it - I can't keep up with all of the new posts. If there was a forum related to software …

Re: Retro Software Development?

Yeah, I was hoping for a forum for not just release announcements but also discussion of development topics, something which would include threads like the following (which are mostly recent I think, I didn't go back very far to find them and only checked a few forums): https://www.vogons.org/ …

Re: Retro Software Development?

Like it turns out Windows NT 3.x lacks the WM_SIZING and WM_EXITSIZEMOVE events - how do you emulate them with the window messages that NT 3.x does provide? IIRC there is basically a single forum post from 15 years ago visible to google that discusses this subject at all and it points to some …

Re: Retro Software Development?

I've been reading this thread for a while and I don't think I have anything very interesting to add to this discussion, but I'm replying since people are gauging the viability of a new forum based on how many people are replying :) It's about living in the process of one's ideas development, and …

Re: Terminal multiplexer for DOS

I just happened to run across the DOS Power Tools book at http://vtda.org/books/Computing/OperatingSystems/ although it's the first edition; I think the second edition had a chapter about issues in DOS 4, although this first edition does mention DOS 4 a little. Others might find it interesting to …

Re: FTP client TSR for DOS?

One possibility is to have an intermediate machine which translates protocols, e.g. a Linux machine which mounts the desired FTP server(s) (see e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FTPFS ) and then re-exports them to the DOS machine via a protocol it does have a client for (e.g. EtherDFS, Mars NWE so …

Re: FTP client TSR for DOS?

Anyway, I think another problem might be that FTP usually requires a copy operation. Other types of networks/network drives can read files partially, without the need for complete file transfer. The copy operation could just be to a buffer in RAM rather than to disk, and I imagine that with FTP one …

Re: Terminal multiplexer for DOS

Very interesting Doshea ! that's another great alternative to try. You're a great scout. How do you find all this? In this case my dad bought the DOS Power Tools book sometime back when it was relevant - probably having the PC Magazine logo on it meant it seemed reputable, or maybe he read about it …

Re: Terminal multiplexer for DOS

I suppose it's cheaper to register a cracking program than to individually register all the programs that it can crack, so people might still register it? :) Back on topic, I had a look through the book DOS Power Tools (I'm not sure if it's possible to read it online) and found out that PC Magazine …

My new old software projects

in Milliways
I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum to post about this, but I thought that if I share some information about the projects I am working on and have worked on in the past but never finished, I might get some feedback that encourages me to actually finish one of them :) Automated OS and …
