Here are some utilitys, made by a UNIX addict, to imitate closely
the corresponding UNIX commands.
All of you know these commands, so I don't think manual pages
are required.

Some brief explanation:

Usage: df [drive:]
When called without arguments, it will display the space
used / free in Kbytes and in clusters, of all available drives
from C: on upwards.
With an drive identifier as argument, it will display the same
info for the given drive, followed by the default info.

Usage: du -s [directory]
Du will give you the disk usage in Kbytes from the current or
given directory downwards. The -s option only gives a summary.

Usage: ls -Flrst [file [file ...]] (or directory)
Options: -F : Add '/' for subdirectorys, and * for executable files.
-l : Long listing, status and date/time info is displayed.
-r : Reverse the sort order.
-s : Also display the size in Kbytes before the filename.
-t : Sort by modify time instead of alphabetically

Usage: rm [-rf] file/directory [file...]
Allows multiple file arguments (not like 'del')
Options: -r : Recursive delete of all files and subdirs.
-f : Delete read-only files also.
Warning: rm -rf \ is FATAL!!

Usage: mv file file
mv file [file ..] directory
Allows full path names in both source and destination (on same drive).
This command actually moves links, not files.
Existing destination files will be overwritten!


The sources supplied are for Microsoft C 4.0, I haven't tried other
compilers, so maybe some others will work too.
Also you need MASM to assemble the clsize.asm file.
The file 'all' is the makefile for Microsoft make. Just type 'make all'.

Status of the software:
These programs are freeware, please distribute freely, and without
additional costs, exept for disks or postage.
But please distribute the complete package only, including this notice.

I have used the software for quite a time now, and now harmful bugs
have appeared. But I don't take any responsibility for any harm
caused by the use (or misuse) of these programs.

  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:
