The enclosed file, EXE.EXE, is a small utility from Dr. Dobb's Journal
that allows you to view and modify the Header on .EXE files. It's a
lot easier to use than Microsoft's EXEMOD.EXE in that it allows you to
enter parameters as a DECIMAL Number of Bytes rather than number of
Paragraphs and a lot of Hex stuff. 'been programming a long time, but
I still have to stop and think [sometimes 2 or 3 times] whenever I have
to stoke up EXEMOD.
to Alan Holub of DDJ....
I have modified the source code as originally published, adding a few
"\n's" to make the text stand out better and a warning not to use this
utility on anything BUT a valid .EXE. AND, mostly because I like to
tinker, I changed some of the Screen Text slightly and added a Clear
Screen routine so that the display does not scroll up from the bottom.
It now writes from the top down. [NOTE: cls() is from the CSPOTRUN
Library, available in the Pub. Dom. as CSR20.ARC. It's a good one!]
To appreciate the real power of this little program, get ahold of Mr.
Holub's column 'C Chest' in Dr. Dobb's Journal, January '87, page 104.

  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:
