For some reason or other, I have become the "guru" in our local area
for figuring out patches for new versions of LIST by Vern Buerg.

The only reason I got into this was because I had to change my own
LIST to COMM 2 when the dialer was first introduced into LIST, and
made the mistake (grin) of uploading a message to my BBS about it.

To help me figure one patch found herein for new versions of LIST,
I built the TABLE.V75 file, which is nothing more than a list of the
WHAT table. When a new version comes out, I locate and adjust the
debug address column, and walla, the X to alt-X patches jump right out!

I must WARN you carefully: there may be errors in my TABLE.V75. I did
check the beginning and ending addresses, and also the locations for
the X vs alt-X switching, but not much more. It should be OK, as the
WHAT table is nothing more than pointers to the WHERE table, but
do check LIST.COM before you use the table for other patches.

I do think LIST is the greatest utility around. If you are using
these patches, I presume you like LIST too. Be sure to send Vern
a donation for his efforts! He deserves it.

The following notes are included herein:


-------------------------------------------------------------------
PATCH.V75 1597 9-01-90 How to patch LIST PLUS 7.5a for
COMM 2 and / or PULSE dialing.

PATCH3.V75 1245 9-01-90 Using a [P]CED synonym with the dialer
in LIST 7.5a
-------------------------------------------------------------------

PATCH6.V75 1152 9-01-90 Using LIST with SSCAN in Directory Freedom.
to browse the ASCII inside of executables.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

TABLE.V75 14998 9-01-90 A list of the WHAT table in LIST PLUS 7.5a
-------------------------------------------------------------------


To use any of the .PAT files, just get yourself into a directory with
a copy of LIST.COM and the .PAT file. Then type
DEBUG < ladeda.PAT
where ladeda is the name of the .PAT file of choice.


I am not responsible for any mistakes made by you, Vern, or myself!
So use this file with care. Be sure you have a copy of LIST before you
start. And remember, this is for the PLUS version only of LIST 7.5a.
Page 49 of LIST.DOC has a very good discussion of configuring LIST.COM
written by Vern. He has also included the WHERE table!!

You can yell at Ben Rees who prompted me to put these all into one file,
or you can call "The Cricket BBS" at 408-373-3773 and yell at me.
I sysop there....

Again, thanks to Vern Buerg for LIST.

  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/
