INEVENT Release Version 1.0 January 13, 1993

What it is
INEVENT is a DOS class that will allow you to gather mouse, scan-code,
and keyboard messages from a SINGLE (overloaded) function-name.
By calling GetMessage() from your program, you can make your DOS
C programs "event driven" (see inevent.c for the basic idea).

INEVENT will be featured in the Febuary 1993 version of BYTE in "Some
Assembly Required". I worte the class to demonstrate how C++ can be
used to "wrapper" message-gathering on several operating-system
platforms. I have versions of this for DOS, UNIX, OS/2 and Windows.
Only the DOS version is "freeware".

Written with Borland C++. Runs under all versions. Should work fine
with Microsoft 7.0, though I haven't use MSC for a long time.

Don't Forget!
All that I ask is that if you modify these files, let me know so that
I can share your goodies with the rest of the world (I'll give you the
credit in the next READ.ME file)! Also, although I have tested this
stuff and it runs without any flaws that I can see, I am obliged to
mention that you have to USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

  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:
