Programs written in BASIC may be saved to disk in an encoded binary format
which prevents the program from displaying a listing in response to the
normal BASIC commands -- LIST -- LLIST -- or EDIT commands. This is
accomplished by specifying a ,P after the program name as it is being
saved. The program will run normally but is protected from alterations as
well as from viewing the source material. IBM has not provided a method
for unprotecting a program saved with the ,P option.

It is possible to unprotect such a program with the use of the UNPROTEC
utility. Follow these steps.

1. Load the protected program into memory.
2. Place disk containing the UNPROTEC utility in the active drive.
3. Enter the command.... BLOAD "UNPROTEC.BLD",&h464
4. Enter the command.... LIST
5. The program may now be listed and saved in the normal way.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
