Contents of the RBROWN.TXT file


Public Domain/Freeware/Shareware by Ralf Brown:

The MSDOS Interrupt List
A comprehensive listing of more than 4400 functions available
through interrupt calls on IBM PCs and compatibles. Includes both
documented and undocumented functions.
Current version: INTER32A (release 32, 9/13/92)
INTER32B
INTER32C (conversion programs)

DVINT
An extract of the MSDOS Interrupt List containing the DESQview
and QEMM API calls. Updated whenever there have been significant
additions to the DESQview/QEMM calls in the Interrupt List.
Current version: DVINT32 (9/13/92)

RBcomm
A DESQview-aware communications program which sports seamless DSZ,
PCZ, or PUMA/MPt integration for file transfers; ANSI/VT102, VT52,
and AVATAR emulation (including 132 columns); speeds to 57600 bps;
a powerful macro language; dialing directory; and more. Runs in
65K with DSZ, 45K without. While it works under plain DOS,
additional features are available under DESQview.
Current version: RBCOMM33 (v3.31 2/3/91)
Note: a limited-distribution pre-beta of version 3.4 is available
on SoundingBoard and CS.CMU.EDU *only*.

SPAWNO
A replacement for the Turbo C and Microsoft C spawn..() functions
which swaps the current program to disk, EMS, XMS, or raw extended
memory while the spawned program executes, leaving less than 300
bytes in memory. Also includes a variant for Turbo Pascal v4.0 or
higher.
Current version: SPWNO413 (v4.13 12/12/92)
Price: libraries free, full source code $100.

RBkeyswap
Exchange left control and CapsLock keys, as well as Esc and `/~.
Loads itself high, using just 64 bytes; needs only 128 bytes low
if no high memory is available.
Current version: RBKEYSWP (v2.0 6/22/91)

AMISLIB
Public Domain library (with full source code and five sample TSRs)
for creating self-highloading TSRs which may be unloaded in any
order.Up to 256 TSRs created with AMISLIB may be installed
simultaneously, and TSRs can be as small as 128 bytes resident,
1.4K on disk. One of the sample TSRs is a popup which accesses
DOS.
Current version: AMISL091 (v0.91 10/16/92)

DV-GLUE
DESQview API bindings for Turbo C.
Current version: DVGLUE10 (source)
DVGLUL10 (compiled)
DVGLU101 (update) (v1.01 8/12/88)

DVKPOLL
"Poor man's version" of TAME. Makes programs give up CPU time when
they are in an idle loop polling the keyboard for keystrokes.
Current version: DVKPOLL2 (6/18/88)
Note: This program has been superceded by DVPTAME.

DVPTAME
"Not-so-poor man's version" of TAME. Tells DESQview to give the
remainder of a time slice away if the program is in an idle loop
polling the keyboard for keystrokes. Uses 0 bytes of memory.
Current version: DVPTAME (6/4/91)

DVdevload
Load device drivers only in those DESQview windows which need the
services of the driver, reducing the pre-DESQview overhead and thus
permitting larger DESQview windows.
Current version: DVDEVL11 (v1.10 8/22/92)
Note: as of DESQview 2.40, Quarterdeck's DEVICE.COM is able to install
drivers into the device chain in the same manner as DVdevload;
however, DEVICE uses nearly eight times as much memory as DVdevload
and has a serious interaction with 4DOS/NDOS that can lead to system
crashes.

SPTURBO
An integrated environment for Borland's Sprint word processor and
Turbo C, Turbo Pascal, Turbo Assembler, Turbo Debugger, and CDECL.
Knows which compiler to invoke based on the file's extension, and
can run MAKE for multi-file projects.
Current version: SPTURBO (v2.3 Aug 1,1989)
Note: Do not expect any updates, as I no longer use Sprint as a
programming environment.

PURGEMSG
Delete or copy *.MSG files such that you only see those messages
from a Fidonet echomail area which interest you.
Current version: PURGEMSG (v1.00, 8/4/91)

Note: beginning 1/1/91, all packages are distributed in PKZIP archives with
authenticity verification. Please redistribute only the original
archives to preserve the authenticity information. If you receive
an archive dated after 1/1/91 which fails the authenticity check,
you should treat it with caution. If you receive an archive which
passes the PKZIP v1.1 check but displays an authenticity code other
than NWS235, then the archive has been deliberately tampered with
and should be deleted IMMEDIATELY.

On the Internet, by standard anonymous FTP from CS.CMU.EDU [128.2.222.173].
Change directly to directory /afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/ralf/pub with a
single command (directories above this are not accessible via
anonymous FTP). [DV-GLUE is not available here]
Don't forget to set "binary" mode! If you are refused access to
the directory, try again later; a fileserver may have been down.

If connected to AFS, you can simply perform standard Unix/VMS/whatever
directory listing and file copies from the above directory.

My programs are kept in file area 8 for those wishing to download
manually.

Alternate Distribution Points (new versions will be available here
usually within twelve hours of release):
Internet: on WSMR-SIMTEL20.ARMY.MIL [192.88.110.20] in directories
PD1: where x is INFO for the Interrupt List, MODEM for
RBcomm, C for SPAWNO, ASMUTL for AMISLIB, DESQview for
DV-GLUE/DVKPOLL/DVPTAME, and SPRINT forSPTURBO. Note that you
must use mode "tenex" or "type L 8" to successfully FTP the files.
SIMTEL20 also has a number of mirror sites which contain all of
the files but may be a few daysbehind in updates. These include
