This text file contains a list of all YossiWare products, with
not-too-brief overview of each. The products that are included
are either released, or in late beta stage.

DVCOPY (Latest: 2.00; Next: unknown)

DVCopy is a file copying utility, that is built to work under
DESQview. It combines many features that are handy to any
DESQview User, while some of them are unique revulotionary and
exciting features, never seen in other programs.

DVCopy's top feature is its ability to read/write floppy drives
without causing a complete slow-down on all other tasks. It does
this in several levels of protection, so you can find out what
fits you best.

Also, DVCopy is, unless disabled, fully share aware. It will
open files at the most flexible, yet safe way. It will also
recognize when a specific file is locked, and will try to open
it a few times, until it will skip it, and go to the next file.
When all files are copied, it will go back to that individual
file, and retry to open it one more time.

Registered versions of DVCopy have another useful feature, which
is 4DOS/NDOS compatibility. On a registered DVCopy, you can let
DVCopy copy the file's 4DOS/NDOS description together with the
file itself. Also, you can instruct DVCopy to MOVE files. It
will use fast-move when possible. You may also instruct DVCopy
to display a progress indicator, that lets you know how much of
the file was being copied yet. In addition, DVCopy can be set to
prompt, when the traget file is already found, and more.

This combination of features, together with the fact DVCopy is
written to be small and effective, and is using 16-bit 80286
Assembly, makes it the best utility for copying under DESQview,
as well as for other multiuser or multitasking environments.

SMASTER (Latest: 3.05; Next: unknown)

SMaster is a deluxe files-lister for RemoteAccess, SuperBBS and
QuickBBS based systems. It supports QFV (DISP) and SuperBBS's
extended description lines, and will process them correctly on
all operations. SMaster comes in two versions of executebles,
8-bit XT version, and 16-bit 80286 Assembly version, optimized
for speed and size. In addition, SMaster is fully DESQview
and share aware, and can work on a MultiLine BBS without a

SMaster can create AllFiles, NewFiles, MissingFiles and
OrphansList. Using security-range coverage, you can choose what
areas to list, and what areas to drop from lists. SMaster can
add a summary at the end of your lists, with total files listed,
bytes listed, offlines etc. Local summary (and header) for each
and every area is supported as well, and can be, optionally,
turned on.

Using SMaster, you can configure the way your lists will look
like. You can make them colored with ANSI-Sequences, with your
favorite color set. You can make them ready-to-be-printed, with
page-cuts, form-feeds, and optional headers.

You may have your allfiles alphabetically sorted, or have
SMaster put a default description line on all files with no
description. You can set a list of files, to be excluded from
Oprhnas-list, or have SMaster remove (or add) all
download-counters attached to begining of description.

All this, and much more, makes SMaster the best choice for
generating files-lists on RemoteAccess, SuperBBS or QuickBBS
systems, especially if using any of DISP's well-known QFV-Series

MULTICHAT (Latest: 1.00; Next: 2.00)

MultiChat is a split-screen multi-line online chat system for
the RemoteAccess based BBS. It works as a keyboard to keyboard
chat, works very fast, and supports up to 4 nodes simultaneously.

Using its powerful configuration, you can define almost anything
concerning MultiChat. You can set it to inform about incoming
online messages, the moment they arrive, or have it ignore them.
You can give your users unlimited time to be on MultiChat, or
instruct MultiChat to check their time-limit, and quit when it
exceeds. You can instruct MultiChat how many windows to draw on
the screen, so you won't have wasted space on the screen. In
addition, you can even set all colors MultiChat uses.

For the users themselves, MultiChat is even more friendly. Each
user writes in a separate window, and many users can write
simultaneously, without having any conflict. All windows have
both automatic word-wrapping, and line scrolling, which makes
writing much easier.

In addition, MultiChat offers many other handy features. Users
can list all users that are online, on all lines, no matter what
they are doing. The users can also send online messages to any
user on any line, as well as receive online messages that are

MultiChat is also capable of letting one user "whisper" to
another, while all other users will not even be able to know the
user whispered anything, and of course, without any other user
actually see the whisper. Users are also capable of clearing
their chat-window, redrawing the screen (in case of noise on the
line), being informed of the exact time left they have, and more.

MultiChat can be used on cases when all nodes are on the same
machine (using a multitasker), when a LAN is used, or when both
methods are combined!

OFL [ONLINE FILES LISTER] (Latest: 1.00; Next: unknown)

OFL is an online files lister. Unlike all other AllFiles and
NewFiles files listers available today, which work offline, once
in a period, and build a hard-coded lists, customized by the
Sysops, OFL is very flexible.

First, OFL runs online, as a door. It creates the files lists
online, and therefore its lists are the most updated.

OFL is very flexible with both hardware and software. It is very
well-behaved under DESQview, is built to work under MultiLine
systems, does not require any ANSI or AVATAR driver, and
supports many of the software standards.

OFL will let your users choose what areas to list, using an
advanced user interface, comparing to other doors. It will allow
you to define if local summary for each area will be added, and
if a global summary for all areas listed will be added. It will
let you to define if the output files will have colors (using
ANSI sequences), and can also let the user decide, and even
select what colors to use. The same goes for the stripping of
download counters, and formatting the output files for printing
on a printer (putting headers, FormFeeds etc).

You can define up to 5 types of archives, that OFL will let the
users use in order to compress the output files. In addition,
OFL lets you define what will be the name of the output files,
and where exactly they will be located. You can instruct OFL to
add a banner to your newfiles and/or allfiles list. OFL can also
put this, or a different banner on the archived file itself! You
may also let it check the time and download limit of the user,
and warn if not enough time/KB is left for downloading the file.

OFL, as a lister, is very configurable as well. You can
configure the strings it will use, for stating a file is
offline, for default description, and many others.

All this, and more. OFL can be used on multinode BBSes, as it
will take all precautions against internode conflicts. OFL is
fully SHARE aware. You can instruct OFL to build
DISP/FileDoor compatible tag files, to make your user's life

AVTHELP (Latest: 0.10; Next: Unkown)

AVTHelp is a very simple yet useful program. All it does is
verifying that every ANS file has a compatible AVT file. If it
find no AVT, or an AVT which is older than the ANS itself, it
reports about it in a log file.

This is very helpful when changing screens, and forgetting to
convert the newly generated ANSI files to AVATAR.

MAILCHECK (Latest: 1.00; Next: 1.10)

MailCheck is a small and simple program, meant for use during the
daily mail-processing event.

MailCheck will scan the Hudson message base (MSG*.BBS) and/or the
Fido/Opus style (*.MSG) NetMail directory for new unread mail for
a specific user (You!), and report about messages found in your
mailer's log.

It is useful to all of us, who read their log files, and expect
to find there info about what happened on the last days, as well
as what mail is waiting.

MailCheck is capable of writing into either FrontDoor (RA
Compact) or OPUS (RA Extended) log types, thus
seems like an integrated part in your mail system. MailCheck is
also capable of handling RemoteAccess's Message Base sharing
scheme, and can use your lastread pointer to determine where to
start scanning - thus scanning much faster!

When scanning the NetMail directory, MailCheck recognizes
messages that were written on InterNet, and passed into FidoNet
via a UUCP gateway. Then, it scans the message text, and reports
in the log who wrote the message originally on InterNet.

DPMITEST (Latest: 1.00; Next: unknown)

During some work on using the DPMI services, I came up with a
simple routine (actually, a simple interrupt call) for
identifying DPMI versions and capabilities.

DPMITEST is actually this routine, which will let you know
whether or not an DPMI host is loaded on your machine. If one is
found, it will also display its version, the ability to support
32-bit programs, and the processor type (according to the DPMI

  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:
