Hello.

This is a little utility that I wrote that piggybacks on the
work of COM2DATA. It reformats the text file that COM2DATA
creates so that it can be used as a script for DOS's debug utility.
To keep the program simple it relys on redirecton.

What COM2DATA does is read in a .COM file and output a text file
that is a listing in hex with line numbers and the 'DATA' BASIC
statement included. Most types of stand-alone (NON-TSR) .COM or
.BIN files can be included in your basic programs like this if
you know how. It is EASY if you dont! Just learn and ENJOY!!!

P.S. Oh yes... To use it just type:
COM2DATA INCRAP.COM OUTCRAP.BAS
and then type:

DATA2SCR OUTCRAP.BAS > CRAP.SCR or something like that!
and then type:

DEBUG < CRAP.SCR (Note well the direction of the arrows)

and then you will have created a .COM file named OUTCRAP.COM

I have included the source code in C. It was a small programming
assignment but it ended up being real spaghetti code. I promise,
however that it is entirely bug free. The nice thing about using
input that is computer generated from another program is that you
can rely on it. No need to make things idiot proof. No offense
meant but poeple are just too erratic.

  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/
