NEWBAUD version 1.0 - PROCOMM PLUS v1.1B variable baud patcher.

Copyright (C) 1989 DATASTORM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
All Rights Reserved


PURPOSE:

The NEWBAUD program can be used to overwrite an existing baud
rate with *any* baud rate supported by the 8250 UART. For instance,
if you need 600 baud but never use 300 baud, you can change 300 baud
to 600. Several places in the program may still display the old baud
rate rather than the new replacement baud rate. Also, the script
command SET BAUD will require the old baud rate. In other words,
in the example given above you would include the command SET BAUD 300
to switch to 600 baud.


SYNTAX:

NEWBAUD or
NEWBAUD [d:][path] [/B]

The program is menu-driven and fairly self-explanatory. It will prompt
you for the appropriate choices. Program may be aborted by hitting the
ESCAPE key.


NOTES:

- [d:][path] specifies the directory where a copy
of PROCOMM PLUS v1.1B is to be altered. Example:

NEWBAUD C:\PCPLUS


- Use /B to force a black and white display. Example:

NEWBAUD /B or
NEWBAUD C:\PCPLUS /B


WARNINGS:

- only modify backup copy!!

- permanently removes a baud rate.

- many places in program will still show original baud rather than the
baud rate you have changed it to.

  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/
