Here's an updated list of my free programs as of June 29, 1993:

--

PROGRAM: DIRX.EXE
TITLE: Directory of eXecutables v1.10, 06/29/93
ARCHIVE: DIRX110.ZIP
Shell for detecting files compressed by several executable file compressors.
Calls on user-selectable external programs to transparently compress and
uncompress files from within the program. Currently supported are AXE,
DIET, EXEPACK, ICE, LEXEM, LZEXE, PKLITE, SCRNCH, SHRINK and TINYPROG. New:
Updated for PKLITE 1.15 compressed .COM files. Also, no longer messes with
your DOS-level screen colors.

PROGRAM: DIRXC.EXE
TITLE: DirX Command-line lister v1.10, 06/29/93
ARCHIVE: DIRXC110.ZIP
Smaller, simpler version of DirX for when you just want a listing of
compressed and uncompressed files. Listing is redirectable to printer or
file. Mimicks DOS's DIR command, to an extent. No sorting is performed.
New: Updated for PKLITE 1.15 compressed .COM files. Also, indicates
compression types using full names (e.g. "pklite" and "diet") rather than
cryptic abbreviations.

PROGRAM: RV.EXE
TITLE: RView v2.50, 03/20/93
ARCHIVE: RV250.ZIP
Customizable archive lister & utility. Currently supported are ARC, ARJ,
HYP, LZH, LZS, PAK, SQZ, ZIP & ZOO. Displays ZIP- or LZH-style compression
ratios. Various sort options. Converts self-extracting archives back to
normal. Misc. other features. New: Supports Squeeze It 1.08.3 (dated
24-Jan-93) and Hyper 2.5.

PROGRAM: RVS.EXE
TITLE: RView Shell v1.11, 03/20/93
ARCHIVE: RVS111.ZIP
Shell for viewing and extracting the contents of several archive types.
Calls on user-selectable external programs to extract and view. Currently
supported are ARC, ARJ, HYP, LZH, LZS, PAK, SQZ, ZIP and ZOO. Displays
either ZIP- or LZH-style compression ratios. Various sort options. New:
Supports Squeeze It 1.08.3 (dated 24-Jan-93) and Hyper 2.5. Extracting with
all files tagged is faster than previously.
ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
My development copy of RVS extends the /V[ext] options specified in RVS.CFG
to work outside of archives too. For example, when looking at a DOS
directory, pressing in a filename will invoke the appropriate viewer
just as from within archives.

PROGRAM: DBV.EXE
TITLE: DBF View v1.22, 08/08/92
ARCHIVE: DBV122.ZIP
Simple viewer for taking quick looks inside dBASE-compatible .DBF files in
record and browse modes. Does single-field, scan-across searches. File
header info, including field definitions, can be displayed either in
interpreted (human-readable) format, or as hex bytes. Editing of fields in
both record and browse modes enabled by command-line switch. New: The /Fx
switch sets different levels of filtering for .DBF files.
ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
My development copy allows a simplified form of complex search. The
original simple search is still supported, but from the pull-down menu, you
could, for example, specify: name = "brown" and date = "1/1/93" and any
matching records are found. A control-key command will continue the last
search.

PROGRAM: FIX.EXE
TITLE: File Fix v3.04, 08/08/92
ARCHIVE: FIX304.ZIP
Binary editor, with record orientation, which allows searches for either
text or hex strings. Default record size automatically set to maximum
allowed by number of lines on screen. (Maximum record size is 576 bytes
with a 50-line screen.) The program draws from a common library of routines
shared with other programs I've written. Color or black-and-white mode
automatically determined at program start-up. New: Typing of extended
ASCII characters enabled (for non-American users with modified keyboards).

PROGRAM: ZFV.EXE
TITLE: ZIP Format View v1.11, 08/08/92
ARCHIVE: ZFV111.ZIP
Allows you to see how a ZIP file is laid out on disk. Uses windowing to
step down to lower levels of detail. Displays header offsets and most field
values, including their interpretation. Admittedly, this program isn't for
everyone. For the curious and those with a need to know, however, this
program displays technical data on ZIP files that I haven't seen in any
other program. New: Switch to set level of filtering for ZIP files.
Configuration file for default switches. Updated for the Super-fast Deflate
compression algorithm.

PROGRAM: CRC.EXE
TITLE: Cyclic Redundancy Checker v1.20, 02/08/92
ARCHIVE: CRC120.ZIP
Displays 16- and 32-bit CRC's of files or directory contents. 16-bit CRC
same as for ARC, LZH, LZS, PAK and ZOO files. 32-bit CRC same as for ARJ
and ZIP. "CRC filespec" displays individual CRC's for the specified
file(s). "CRC path" displays accumulated CRC's of all files contained in
the specified directory. May be used to compare files/directories on
physically separated machines, or to see if changes have occurred over time.
New: The functions of both CRC v1.14 and CRCDIR v1.00 have been combined
into a single program.

  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/
