Hi, I have been searching for the complete reference manual of MS-DOS 5.0. I saw one in Internet Archive, but it's not complete.

Please PM me if you have any information on where I can get this. Thank you.

Do you have the ISBN number? What company published it? Is it by Microsoft or a 3rd party?

This came bundled with the licensed copy of MS-DOS my family received when we purchased our first computer, AFAICR .

This is a user guide and command reference . It includes no API documentation or programming reference material .

See : https://archive.org/details/microsoftmsdosu00micr I think it can be virtually loaned .

P.S. Sorry about crappy photos, I am too tired to be more pedantic .

I have one, published by BEC. I learned DOS from it when I was a kid.

Looking around it seems many similar copies from various distributors are available on the forbidden website.

I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
