DOS software

programs I wrote back when DOS was still hip

Published: 2017 August 2

Once upon I time I had a PC that ran DOS. Naturally, I had to write some programs for it. As does is currently so dead it's not funny they're not really worth much these days; but, hey, disk space is cheap and someone might find them useful.

One thing I was particularly keen on was PC/GEM; more popular on the Atari ST, Digital Research did a version for the PC. Caldera inherited it when Digital Research folded and released it as open source. While quite pathetic by today's standards it's still surprisingly functional. I wrote a few things for it, which are included here.
