The main utility FILLDISK (compiled BASIC) and the subfunctions DSPACE,
DFILL (in assembly language) were used to fill the remaining space of a
program diskette, to prevent a user to start creating additional files
in a too small area on the same floppy and to prevent to have to physi-
cally write-protect floppy diskettes. The .TMP file directory entry can
eventually be made invisible in an additional step.


* If these routines are of help to you, a modest donation of $5 sent
* to Ben Sperry at the above address would be appreciated very much!

  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/
