This program helps make network dumb programs run better on a network.
It does this by allowing you to use filenames that contain referrences
to environment variables. These referrences are allowed in BATCH files
but not DOS programs. NetSmart solves this problem.
NetSmart also intercepts file access calls and translates compatibility
mode (or network dumb mode) to the more advanced sharing modes. The /L
option allows for liberal translation which could be somewhat dangerous
but is handy for very dumb programs.
By it's nature, this program isn't going to work with everything. If
it works, it works. If it doesn't, then don't use it.
Usage: NS (/L)
NS XCOPY F:\HOME\%USERNAME%\*.* A:
In this example, NS will translate the %USERNAME% into a file name
that DOS can handle.
When installing network dumb software, you can use environment variable
referrences for things like path names for configuration files. Thus, a
program that normally only gives you one filename option need not be
installed in every users directory.
NS is not exacltly a TSR. It unloads itself each time it is run so
you have to use the NS command each time you use it. This way,
NetSmart only takes up memory with programs that need to use it.
