ProtoMak 1.25 Documentation Apr 1, 1993

ProtoMak is designed to assist "C" and "CPP" programmers in avoiding
typing "prototypes" for functions for programs.

Some, but not many, compilers will generate function "prototypes". This
program is intended for users of compilers that do not provide this feature.
The compilers that have this feature do not provide the many features of
ProtoMak and thus ProtoMak should be of value to those compiler users.

Typing "ProtoMak" at the DOS prompt will show a help screen.

Typing "ProtoMak -?" will show an extended help screen.

ProtoMak is distributed as "cheapware". You may try this program for 30 days
to see if it is of value to you before registering. If you find the product
to be of value you MUST pay the registration fee or stop using the program.

If you paid a fee for ProtoMak to anyone but CSS, you did NOT register
ProtoMak you paid for media and handling costs.

Registration will bring you faster versions that are compiled to use the
extra power of 80286 or 80386+ computers, as well as a faster 8086/88


ProtoMak is Copyright (c)1992,1993 by CSS. All Rights Reserved.

ProtoMak is provided AS-IS without warranty!

CSS is NOT and will NOT be responsible for the use or misuse of this program.

It is the belief of CSS that this program will function essentially as
described in this document but CSS cannot test for every possible
software/hardware configuration.

If you use this program then you have agreed to the previous statements.
Individuals are allowed to use this program on more than one computer as long
as it cannot be used one more than one computer at a time.

Use of this program by "for profit" organizations or Government
organizations beyond the 30 day trial period requires registration.

Each change of the version numbers reflects corrections and/or
"improvements" to ProtoMak. This reflects the ongoing testing of the output.

The source code for ProtoMak is available to registered users for $25 for
individuals or $100 for government or "for profit" organizations. If you
purchase the source code you will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure
agreement and will NOT be allowed to distribute any modified or unmodified
form of ProtoMak or the source code. You will be able to utilize modified
versions for your own use. This provision is for the protection of myself
and other users and is NOT intended to prohibit individuals or organizations
from adjusting the program for specific needs. Individuals or organizations
wishing to incorporate ProtoMak into a program should contact me directly for
very nominal licensing fees. The program compiles with Turbo C++ 3.0,
Borland C++ 3.1, TopSpeed C++ 3.02, Microsoft C++ 6/7, and Zortech C++ 2/3.

NOTE: Due to the low registration cost of ProtoMak - Registration or
purchase of the source does NOT in anyway require any support for
the program by CSS. However, CSS will address problems reported
in a prompt manner.

Anyone may distribute the ProtoMak cheapware version as long it is unmodified,
complete and any distribution fee is less than $5.00.

NOTE: The registered versions of ProtoMak may NOT be distributed.

  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:
