FILES.DOC - documentation for distribution files.

The following files are included in the DOSGATE distribution:

DOSGATE.SYS - This is the main DOSGATE driver. It is to be installed
from the CONFIG.SYS file. See DOSGATE.DOC for more info.

LIST.EXE - These programs belong to the DOSMAIL system. They depend on
SEND.EXE the envionment variable MSG to be set to the drive and
READ.EXE directory to be specified correctly. See DOSMAIL.DOC.
KILL.EXE

MAINTAIN.EXE * Special note for MAINTAIN.EXE, don't install this file on
your system where users can get at it (see DOSMAIL.DOC).
This program will allow you to delete, undelete, and file
individual mail messages.

PURGE.EXE *** Special Note for PURGE.EXE, don't install this file on your
system where users can get at it (see DOSMAIL.DOC). This
program will purge all deleted mail from your disk. Once this
command is executed, mail CANNOT be un-deleted.

START.EXE - This program is executed when a user connects.
See dosgate.doc.

END.EXE - This program is executed when a use disconnects.
See dosgate.doc.

TALK.EXE - This program allows a remote user to 'Chat' with the DOSGATE
sysop. It make use of the 'SYSOP' environment variable.

SORRY.COM - This program simply prints a 'sorry, command not available'
message. This program should be used in place of some of
the commands that the user could use to destroy the system.
DUMMY.COM - Program does NOTHING. This can be copied to START2.COM or
END2.COM for systems that don't need those functions.

HELP.EXE - This is the help utility for DOSGATE. It looks for a file
with the extention of '.DOC'; ie: if the user types 'HELP ME',
HELP.exe will look for the file 'ME.DOC', and if found, give
that to the user a page at a time. If the user simply types
'HELP' then help.exe will look for a file called 'HELP.DOC' and
give that to the user a page at a time. This method allows the
sysop to customize all help files as needed.

The following help files are an example of some help that
are implemented. Note that several files refer to each other.

HELP.DOC, INFO.DOC, DOS.DOC, MAIL.DOC, NOTES.DOC
40.DOC, RUN.DOC

WELCOME.DOC This file is output to the user when he first connects
by START.EXE


DOSATTR.EXE This program is supplied to allow you to hide/unhide,
directories, files, etc. It also allows other system file
attributes to be changed on files (ie: Read Only so a file
cannot be erased). Just run DOSATTR with no command line
to get some help text. Do NOT install this program on your
system where users can get at it!

CED.COM This public domain program is included AT NO COST.
It is used to set synonyms for various commands.
See the CED.DOC file for information about this command.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
