MTOOL is an interactive mathematical program that accepts functions

of one variable defined by the user. It includes the following features:

- Evaluation of the function for any value or range of values of the

independent variable.

- Evaluation of the derivative of the function for any value of the

independent variable.

- Numeric integration using Simpson's Rule.

- Fast and powerful root finding.

- Graphics using all common PCompatible graphics standards - CGA, EGA,

VGA, Hercules

CONVERT is a unit conversion utility that accepts two arguments from

the command line, a number and a unit (e.g., 10 miles), and shows a list

of equivalent quantities with different units.

Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

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/
