** This ZIP file contains the following files: **
: READ.ME -- This text file :
: MAKEDEMO.BAT -- A demonstration compile of the TYPEM utility :
: ANSII.C -- Source code to the ANSI Interpretor :
: TYPEM.C -- Source code to the TYPEM utility :
: TYPEM.EXE -- TYPEM utility executable :
: ANSII.OBJ -- Object code generated with LARGE memory model :

The DOS command "TYPE" will output text with imbedded ANSI codes in
it, but only when ANSI.SYS is in memory. This interpretor program
will output any such text, without ANSI.SYS even needing to be loaded
into memory. One added advantage this interpretor has over using
ANSI.SYS in your programs is that it respects the current C text
window being used, and will NOT display text outside of it.

This program, and source code, is provided AS IS. There are no
guarantees, and this is all the documentation that comes with it! It
is a simple program, however, and should be relatively easy to adapt
to any application you may need it for.

Written in Turbo C v2.0, it utilizes the powerful inline assembler to
optimize some of the display and positioning routines. Therefore, if
you don't have the Turbo Assembler (which is required to compile the
inline routines), you should not attempt to compile the ANSII.C file
seperately, but simply compile your programs with the ANSII.OBJ file
AS IS. It is already compiled for this reason.

A short little utility called "TYPEM", and source code, is provided
as an example, to show how to use the ANSI interpretor. "TYPEM" will
display a single, or multiple, text files, with a pause screen in
between each, and the ability to pause the screen, or abort to the
next file. A batch file "MAKEDEMO.BAT" is included to show how to
compile the "TYPEM" utility.

ANSII.OBJ was compiled using the LARGE memory model.

  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:
