; page 145
; FUNCTION: draws a line from (x1,y1) to (x2,y2) in the spec-
; ified color. It uses BRESENHAM's algorithm.
; INPUT: Upon entry:
; x1 contains x-coordinate of starting point
; y1 contains y-coordinate of starting point
; x2 contains x-coordinate of end point
; y2 contains y-coordinate of end point
; color contains the color of the line
; OUTPUT: Just to the screen
; REGISTERS USED: No registers are modified
; SEGMENTS REFERENCED: Upon entry ES must point to video RAM at
; B8000h and DS must point to a data segment used by the point-
; plotting routine (see SETPT or XORPT above)
; SPECIAL NOTES: No bounds checking is performed. The user must make
; sure that the coordinates and the color are in their proper ranges.
; That is, x1 & x2 must be between 0 and 319; y1 & y2 must be between
; 0 and 199, and color must be between 0 and 3.

  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:
