PC-PILOT Programmer's Pop-Up
Released as Freeware by Tom Grubbe 1-12-90
PC-PILOT is your basic TSR program for programmer's. It can be run as a
resident program or as a normal non-resident program by adding "-x" at the
The program will run and exit normally without becoming memory resident.
If run as a resident program, make sure it is the last TSR loaded on
your system. You can uninstall PCPILOT from the main menu and this is
why it must be loaded last.
I decided to release this program as FREEware for several reasons:
1. Because I'm a nice guy
2. To share some C functions that I find useful
3. So you can modify it to suit your specific needs
4. So you can be sure of the integrity of this program
IBM PC/XT/AT or compatable
256kb RAM minimum
DOS 3.0 or greater
Color or Monochrome monitor
Borland's Turbo C (c) 1.5 or greater (optional)

SCR .LIB- Screen functions library
SCR .TXT- listing of modules in SCR.LIB
SCR .ZIP- Source code for modules in SCR.LIB
SCR.ZIP contains all the source code contained in SCR.LIB. Most of the
functions were taken from the book "Systems Programming In Turbo C"
by Michael J. Young, Others from the book "Supercharging C With Assembly
Language" by Chesley Waite. These library functions alone make this download
worth your while. I use them in just about every program that I write and
you should find them useful as well.
PCPILOT was compiled in Turbo C v2.0. If you do not have Turbo C, you
won't be able to compile TSR.C which uses the "interrupt" function type,
which most other compilers don't support, in many of its local functions.
Sorry. Also, If you are not a programmer, most of this stuff is probably
of no use to you anyway.
There is no guarentee that PCPILOT will work correctly in all
situations, and in no event will I, the author, be liable for
any damages arising from the use or misuse of this program.
PCPILOT is FREEware and may be distributed and copied by
anyone, anywhere, at any time.
