This is a simple-minded little keystroke replacement program for the F11 and
F12 keys on IBM's Enhanced Keyboard. It will load itself as a resident
program the first time it is used.

The syntax for F11F12.COM is:
F11F12 /1=string1 /2=string2

where string1 and string2 are the strings you wish placed in the
keyboard buffer when you hit F11 and F12. These strings may be
up to 30 characters in length.

For example:

would result in F11 starting ZAPCIS and going on-line for NEW msgs,
and F12 would load BASICA.

These routines can successfully insert keystrokes into the buffer for *any*
program that does not replace either Interrupt 9 or Interrupt 16.

In addition, the shifted F11 and F12 keys (Shift, Control or Alt), are enabled
for use with ANSI.SYS. Use replacement strings such as
where the key to replace falls in the following chart:
Shift-F11 - 135
Shift-F12 - 136
Ctrl-F11 - 137
Ctrl-F12 - 138
Alt-F11 - 139
Alt-F12 - 140

  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:
