Version 2.1
February 19, 1990

This version (2.1) of PC-Areacode is a minor upgrade/revision of the
program and its data files. We fixed a couple of bugs and made a few
cosmetic changes; everything else has stayed the same.

o Version 2.0 did not properly identify the states served by the
areacodes 213, 516, 805 or 806. This bug has been fixed.

o We fixed a bug in the search algorithm that prevented the program
from finding some capitalized entries in the database properly.

o Contrary to the directions in the manual, it was not possible to
run PC-Areacode in non-TSR mode from another directory. If you
tried this, the program usually couldn't find the configuration

This bug has been fixed.

o New large and small datafiles have been prepared for both Texas and
New Jersey, which are adding areacodes within the next year. These

appropriate files to TX.DAT or NJ.DAT to use the revised data.

o The big data files are now compressed using the newest version of
PKWARE's ZIP program. The methodology for uncompressing these
files is slightly changed.

o The data files have been updated to correct all mistakes found
since the last update. Some additional cities have also been

Finally, we are working on a new versions of PC-Areacode which will
use just 5 or 10 K of memory. Registered users will be notified when
this program is available.

  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:
