IMPOSTER 1.01 - New Version of Windows 3.x Product
Freeware author Darrell Burgan has introduced the next production
version of his IMPOSTER command-line interface for Microsoft Windows
3.0-3.1. This product offers the best of both worlds for Windows
users--the speed and convenience of a command-line with the elegance
and access to superior applications provided by Microsoft Windows.
IMPOSTER supports every internal command in DOS 5.0 as well as most
external commands and offers functionality not present in any
competing product. It is capable of launching both DOS and Windows
programs and offers the additional ability to execute any standard DOS
batch file without launching a copy of DOS. IMPOSTER's emulation of
COMMAND.COM is so close that users may forget they're not running DOS
at all--just a carefully crafted Windows program that emulates DOS as
closely as possible.
Also, IMPOSTER supports many commands usually found in third-party
packages such as Symantec's Norton Utilities - commands that can
search ASCII files for a text string, to search all directories for a
file, and to calculate the disk space used by a list of files, etc.
Unlike a DOS window, which consumes as much as 640K of memory at all
times, IMPOSTER uses much less memory, allowing the user to run
IMPOSTER at all times without sacrificing scarce free RAM or free
New features in version 1.01 include improved font support, persistent
insert/overstrike, and a number of bug fixes.
IMPOSTER is freely available to all users at no cost; the author
merely requests that those who find the product useful send in a
no-cost registration form. Those who are interested can download
IMPOSTER from the WINADV forum on CompuServe, from America Online,
from the Digital X-Connect BBS at 214-517-8443, or from fine BBS
systems throughout the world.
