DDOS_AID - by Chris M. Magyar - 12/19/85 Update
Here are a few utilities I wrote that may be of use to those of you who
use DoubleDOS. SWITCH.ASM is a simplified version of the program supplied
with your DoubleDOS distribution disk.
The following files should be included with this ARChive:
1 DDOS_AID.DOC - This File
2 DOUBLEDO.EQU - DoubleDOS interrupts in Equate form for easy ASM
programming. With descriptions.
3 SWITCH .COM - Performs unconditional task switch.
4 SWITCH .ASM
5 SUSPEND .COM - Suspends the Invisible partition.
6 SUSPEND .ASM
7 RESUME .COM - Resumes the Invisible partition.
8 RESUME .ASM
9 HERESTAT.COM - Display Status, Task Number, and return the Status
10 HERESTAT.ASM in the form of an ERRORLEVEL
11 FLIPSTAT.COM - Display Status of Invisible (FlipSide) partition.
12 FLIPSTAT.ASM return status in ERRORLEVEL
13 SEND .COM - Send a charachter string (followed by a CR) to
14 SEND .ASM the other partition. Handles various error
conditions such as keyboard buffer overflow,
nul input, and suspended partitions. See SEND.ASM
for additional info.
These utilities help to round out the DoubleDOS multi-tasking program by
adding BATCH level control over the partitions. SEND is probably the most
useful program, allowing distributed processing. The various supplemental
utilities further enhance control.
I ask for no contributions, but if you decide to improve/add to these
routines, please upload a copy to my BBS (Fido).
