DOS Library

Status: Updated as needed.


Existing software I've packaged up in ZIP / FreeDOS package format.

All work was done under Linux Mint and a VirtualBox FreeDOS machine, text files are created/edited using Sublime Text with Windows "CR, LF" line endings, and archives are packaged using InfoZip 3.0 with the following recipe:

find -exec touch -t date {} \;
zip pkg.zip * -9 -k -r


Debug

Debug and DebugX are extended versions of the old MS DEBUG tool.

ListPCI

ListPCI is a PCI device listing utility which scans the PCI bus of the system on which its running and displays data on all PCI devices it finds. It provides more verbose data than other comparable applications and is more flexible in its command line options. Using these, you may filter the devices reported to only those of a specified vendor ID or of a specified class. ListPCI can also return the number of matching devices in the DOS system variable ERRORLEVEL, making it easy to integrate into batch scripts.
Note: This application requires a 386 or higher CPU.

This package contains the existing 2015-03-05 binary but with more tailored documentation.

UDVD2

UDVD2 is a CD/DVD UltraDMA device driver. UDVD2 itself is now only useful for people who do not want caching or fast hard disk I/O, instead opting for a no-nonsense CD/DVD driver only. For any other situation, UIDE is preferred as it contains all the functionality of UDVD2 with the added benefit of read-ahead caching.

UHDD

UHDD is a disk-only caching driver for up to ten BIOS disks using up to four UltraDMA controllers.

 
 
Version Size Released MD5
2021-06-08 42.8 kB 06/29/2021 404A1B3306BD764E458629241DE23C22

Contains the same UHDD and CC binaries as the existing FreeDOS UIDE package but tailored to UHDD specifically (UIDE has been removed as it already has a separate package), with extra LSM file keywords, and the stray row of 0x1A bytes at the bottom of the original source code removed to avoid potentially choking the compiler.

UIDE

UIDE is a general-purpose caching driver for DOS drives, Floppy, CD/DVD, SATA and UltraDMA disks. The author notes that UIDE is better to save disk space, while UHDD + UDVD2 together allow for read-ahead, resulting in a faster experience.

QBASIC Library

Status: Updated as needed.

Item Version Size Released MD5
GETWORD.BAS 1.00 1.7 kB 1999 FB969BD9880030492ADA999DAB4A6D0B
One of the most useful pieces of code I've ever written, it's found use in numerous situations. Back when I wrote it, the various BASICs I used (BASICA, QBASIC, VBDOS, PowerBASIC) had no function to split a string based on a certain character... so I made my own. Mind you, this was long before modern languages like JavaScript shipped with their own method for doing so. Even now it proves useful as it splits strings differently than the built-in offerings of JavaScript.
 
 
Y2KPatch.zip 1.00 4.7 kB 1999 D78E7E0BF6CADD45BDCFBC63F3EA52F5
Ah, yes, the dreaded Y2K bug! Amidst the grandiose predictions of "experts" that application programs the globe over would collectively perform a lemming-style address jump to their deaths when their RTC overflowed to zero, I did what I always do: wrote a little code to probe, test, and solve. The result is a collection of four BASIC source files comprising an installer, uninstaller, a test to see if the computer in question is even affected by the Y2K bug to begin with, and a patch which fixes the issue if it is. Not an issue nowadays, granted, but back then it was awesome to see this code enable some pretty ancient MS-DOS systems suddenly have the correct date when before they could not manage to do so.

Warp OEM 2.xx Adreno Tweaks 376.9 kB 6/29/2013 84E6828A2C60B68E662E29EBD4289CEE
A flashable to add the Adreno Tweaks (by CosmicDan and Spizzy01 of XDA) into any version of Warp OEM from 2.00 through 2.53, which will majorly boost GPU performance. Special thanks to Dizzle1 for customizing the initial tweaks for the Warp and Blyss for confirming they work on WOEM 2.53! May work with some other ROMs as well, but this cannot be guaranteed.
 
 
Warp OEM 2.51 to 2.53 Update patch 3.2 MiB 5/31/2013 A62E863EED2C4E5D70C5B1B22553E757
For those who have just flashed version 2.51 and would like the security update included in Warp OEM 2.53. Note: Version 2.53 had some updated apps versus version 2.51, however this patch does not include these. For the sake of everyone's sanity, your app folders will not be touched when using this update.
