OVERVIEW

This program is similar to others written in assembly language
but it is written entirely in C. It was done to show that such
a program in C is nearly as small and fast as is the assembly
version and is easy for the user to modify as desired.

The program displays the colors possible on a display. For each
color combination the attribute byte [background color << 4 |
foreground color] is shown in hex.

Use: ESC to exit

Installation: Must be installed in Desqview environment.
Requires a DV memory size of only 3k.
Must set the window size to 8 high and 49 wide.
Program generates colors so set Uses Own Colors.

Files:
colortbl.c the source file ( for MSC 4.0;
compile with small model and link
with stack of 150 bytes - IT IS
REALLY IMPORTANT to either use linker
directive to set stack or to use
EXEMOD. Microsoft's default stack size
is 2k and program will crash DV if
loaded into a 3k segment.)
colortbl.exe compiled version of above - fits in 3k
with room to spare!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
