Re: doscmd status?
Thanks for responses.
I suppose I could see if I can download the source code for doscmd and then see
if it looks compilable under NetBSD 5.1? Maybe even Linux? Might be risky.
I have run DOSBox, recently built DOSBox 0.74 from source under Linux Slackware
13.0, a distribution rather hostile to building packages from source, but
haven't run it yet. With DOSBox 0.72 and 0.73, I was not able to run (Borland)
Quattro Pro 5 or (Ashton-Tate/Borland) dBASE IV 1.5.
Now I have those installations copied to USB sticks. Maybe I could chmod from
root to permit nonroot read-write access and see if that makes a difference? I
was also not able, as nonroot in Linux, to run Quattro Pro or dBASE using
dosemu and FreeDOS. DOS is, as is well-known, a single-user system where
everybody is root. I was able to run Quattro Pro and dBASE from OS/2 Warp 3
and 4 in a DOS session. OS/2 was also a single-user OS where the user is
always root, though OS/2 has some protection against deleting vital system
I might also want to see if I can install FreeDOS onto a USB stick from doscmd
or DOSBox; FreeDOS can't access USB unless I can find a USB driver for DOS that
