Contents of the EXE.DOC file
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.
