COMPA more powerful COMPare command. Can: Compare whole directory trees Show what has changed Show what hasn't changed use: COMP (with no arguments) for a command syntax summary.
CSUCLCIn Jan 2021, I connected to usenet after years of inattention. Not having a recent newsreader or feed, I used "Google Groups" to check it out, and comp.lang.c was one of the first places I went, and got into a few "discussions" which resulted in me writing some somewhat useful tools to manipulate C source: REMove COMments from C source code (response to a posted challenge) Conditional Line Comments (make options without using up non-comment lines) ReFormat Csource from GoogleGroups C source MUNGEr
DBUTILVarious utilities I've written to enhance the experience of using DosBox. These are mainly commands that are either missing or have a reduced capability in DosBox as shipped: BAX More powerful Batch processor COMP Missing in DosBox CP Improved Copy DBOOT Simplifies booting actual DOS DBSC DosBox Screen Capture (useful as DosBox can't redirect stderr) EDT My text EDiTor FIND Missing in DosBox GDBCM Gets DosBox config / mount information into ENV KEYSUB Make DosBox workable on non-PC (see KEYSUB) TREE Missing on DosBox VLT View Large Text files WCMD run host Windows CoMmanDs within DosBox XCD Change Drive and Directory on one command XCOPY Missing in DosBox XDIR DosBox DIR command in quite limited. XRS eXpress ReScan (all mounted drives) _PAUSE Overcome DosBox Ctrl-C bug in .BAT files
DDCBUMy (DD) Copy and Backup Utilities. DIRTLT: Easily see how much data is in tree plus subtrees.~BR; WSYNC: Copy only New/Changed files in tree to a backup copy.~BR; XWS: Easy to WSYNC trees from/to various systems.~BR;
DDVMDecrypts file(s) to an internal DVM RAMdrive, then runs a .DVM program which can access the decrypted data, all the while NOT keeping the decrypted data anywhere on your system which is easily readable/accessible. This helps make it difficult for malicious software to read your data files.
DECZIPUse this to decrypt .ZIP files I send to you via email. I have to encrypt them because many ISPs won't allow sending or receivind certain types of files (like executable) and they do check inside .ZIP attachments for these "dangerous" file types. Unfortunately I am usually sending tools/updates which are file types that are disallowed.
DVMDunfield Virtual Machine This is a virtual processor and complete system that lets you easily create and run simple but powerful programs "pretty much anywhere". This free demo works on Win32/64 as that's the most common mass market systems that I have available in my lab .. BUT .. DVM can be ported to pretty much any system where you want to run small/powerful applications with little overhear and complete control over what they can access/do. Contact me if this is of interest.
DVMRPA simple example of creating, launching and communicating with a DVM "Remote Process", a native Win32 app which runs on the host Windows OS.
EDTA simple and easy text EDiTor This is the main way I work on text files See EDT.TXT for more information
ESPA small tool to modify "patchable" strings in executable (.COM, .EXE or .DVM) files. This provides a way to easily modify certain preset parameters in some of my tools. For help, use: ESP ?
EXAMPLECSources for a selection of C programs. The main purpose is to help you become familier with and exaluate my Micro-C compiler,
FCFTFind Changed Files by TimeStamp This utility will track which of certain files have changed since certain times and dates. use: FCFT ? for a command syntax summary.
FFFFastFile Find A set of tools to make it easy to find and get information about files which may be spread over multiple large directories and drives. Supports powerful MATCHing capabilities and uses a very efficent database to make locating files very fast, no matter where they are spread over. Includes DOS/Win32 as well as DVM/Win64 versions. See FFF.TXT for more information.
FINDSYMFIND SYMbols in source files Makes it easy to see where symbols are being used in various files. I use it mainly for C source code, to see where (and if) symbols are being referenced. Unlike traditional viewers, FINDSYM knows what constitutes a symbol, lets you easily select them within the source file, and can search forward and backward for them, all the while highlighting all occurances showing on the screen.
FTSFile Tims/Size backup utilities Keeps track of files changed based on a database of timestamps and sizes. Pretty much superceeded by CHANGED (see above).
KEYMAPRemap keys using Windows registry entries. This uses scancodes, so complete physical keys are remapped.
KEYSUBInstalls a tiny TSR (DOS) which remaps keycodes returned by: INT 16h AH=0 This lets you remap key functions independantly (ie: Shift, Alt and Ctrl). I use it to make DosBox on tablets workable with non-PC bluetooth keyboards.
LBDIRList Bounded DIRectory Like DIR but scans a whole (and can be large) directory tree, showing the most Old, New, Large, Small files. Use: LBDIR ? for more information.

PTXTPPatch TeXT files with Presets useful to select from various preset setups for: Configuration files Batch files Program source files etc. Use: PTXTP with no arguments to see help.
PWPassword Generator A little utility I created to make it easy to dynamically generate the various unique and secure password needed by many online systems. You only have to "remember" a single password which can be anything you like.
RCCBTool to Remove C Conditional Blocks. Can be quite handy when porting to many different systems. Use: RCCB with no arguments to see help/syntax.
RDALLTool to ReaD ALL files! Useful to confirm that files are written correctly to volatile media (like DVD) also useful to compare two tree listings and see what files are different, or to compare a tree listing with a previous one to see which files have changed. Use: RDALL -? to see help/syntax/
SINCETool to easily tell what files in a path have changed since the last time they were processed. Use SINCE with no arguments to see syntax. Also include UPD.BAT which updates a file called UPD. with the current time. I use: UPD whenever I post changes to my web site, then I can later use: SINCE UPD to see what files have changed since I posted it last. UPD will keep a log of the times/dates the site was updated.
SRSMTFSearch/Replace Strings in Multiple Text Files Easily replace certain string text in many text files. Nice for changing file names, locations etc. in several batch or source code files. For additional information, use: SRSMTF ?
