Needing a quick way to control the screen out of turboc, and not wishing to
have to deal with a new BIOS in every machine, I utilized ANSI.SYS to come up
with some quick cursor positioning routines. Knowing that *EVERYONE* has to
deal with this stuff sometime or another - I turned the most important code
into a library file - and hereby donate it to the public domain. Use it as
you will...

Note!! This stuff will NOT work unless you have installed ANSI.SYS in your
config.sys file! It eats up a little memory, but it is *VERY* portable, and
as for speed, it is comparable with BIOS calls.

The underlining functions do not work with color. They won't *hurt*
anything but they will not underline your text either...

A Library list file is included, that names the usable functions. They
include the standards, clear(), gotoxy (row,col); reverse (); etc etc...

If enough people are interested, I will upload the source for this, along
with my entire include file that defines all the nice cursor keys and stuff.
Drop me E-Mail if you are interested or want a copy of it direct. No Cost
for this, there are *some* inlcudes I cannot include, but all the functions
and defines like this are freely available for your use!

  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:
