Output of file : PATCH6.V75 contained in archive : FORLST75.ZIP
Some of you have read how much I like the DF (Directory Freedom)
program. And how I use DF in the middle of my un-Zip/re-Zip .BAT
file to view the files before re-Zipping (and delete junk too)....
Well, in my playing around with the new LIST75, I have discovered
a way to pipe the output of SSCAN (SuperScan 1.2, a program that
displays the ASCII chars in a file) into LIST. This command:

sscan filenam | list /w /s

will pipe the ASCII chars from SSCAN into LIST for viewing, without
creating a permanent file!

I have added the equivalent of the above into the user installed
command set of DF and can now do a quicky SSCAN of any file that
is displayed on the DF DIR list!!!

sscan ~ | list /w /s

LIST is really more powerful than I realized. BTW, the /W switch
causes LIST to wrap all the data to 80 chars per line, and the /S is
required for piped input to LIST. And, curiously, the /W MUST appear
before the /S, else the Wrap won't work.

Anyway, enjoy all three: LIST75A.ZIP, SSCAN12.ZIP, and DF350A.ZIP....
They can give you a bit more security when perusing new files.

  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/
