Command PC Magazine Vol 4, No 19

______________________________________________________

Purpose: Converts IBM text-graphics characters into
ASCII characters that can be printed by non-
graphics printers.

Format: PRSWAP

Remarks: The IBM text-graphics characters (non-
standard ASCII 176-223 and 254) programmers
often use to make their screen displays look
more attractive cannot be handled by many
printers. PRSWAP.COM is a memory-resident
program that translates these characters into
presentable-looking ASCII substitutes.

PRSWAP should be loaded only once until you
power down or hit Ctrl-Alt-Del. If you

intend to use it regularly, the best place to
put it is in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

  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/
