Name:
FileBrowser Version 1.20

Description:
FileBrowser is a "text spreadsheet" designed to facilitate the task of
reading and understanding large electronic documents. It allows
loading an ASCII or Wordstar (tm) file into a RAM buffer, then
efficiently scrolling, paging or auto-scrolling through it. Text can
be "highlighted", either manually or automatically, and one can jump
quickly to the next or previous highlighted line. Blocks of text can
be exported to a file or to a printer. A simple but effective Search
procedure is incorporated. An external editor may be called from
within the program. If desired, the buffer (with added highlights) can
be saved to a file on exit. Provision is made for changing the external
editor and scrolling speed via command line options, and the text
colours may be changed within the program. All commands may be entered
from popup/pulldown menus, or by one-key commands. Extensive on-line
help is provided, and a full manual.

Remarks:
This is the second Freeware version of this utility to be distributed.
New features will continue to be added; future versions will probably
be Shareware.

Requires:
MS-DOS 2.11 or later, CGA/EGA card - "monochrome" option allows running
on non-colour monitor.

Terms:
"Freeware" - Copyrighted but no charge for use. Registration encouraged.

  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/
