I hope this is a bit interesting for you to know, but it is NOT MEANT TO BE USEFUL INFO CONCERNING FREEDOS. For FreeDOS, only lbacache*.zip and undelete.zip are interesting, plus the bonus tools packaged with them, plus the fact that there is some more more or less useful stuff online in the same directory :-).
Things that are online: (Eric's web site)[eric@gnome] (.../stuff/soft) $ ls copying.txt nl2pho-c.zip terminal-rom.tar.gz dosdosfsck-alpha.zip nl2pho2.pl terminal.zip eecho.asm numfiltNL.c thumbify.sh.txt eecho.com oszi-neu.tgz txt2phoNL.pl feuer-eric.tgz rtf2html.tgz undelete.zip lbacache-devel.zip secumod-2.0.tgz xwatchwin-ea-zoom.tgz lbacache.zip specials
I have moved the weirder things (emmsys, pmlib, special versions...) to special. So what is left? eecho, now included in lbacache (with additional .sys version) to echo ansi escape strings.
- crappy. Made of an old version. Would be pretty cool if made from dosfsck 2.8 for Linux (quite powerful chkdsk!). I am hoping that Bart Oldeman does a better port, so I stopped working on it. I hope Bart has still the plan to port dosfsck!?
- Some graphical effect for Linux.
- The -devel version is definitely better than the standard version (floppy support and less DOS memory needed) but still without write cache...
- converts Dutch text to phoneme strings for the free MBROLA speech synthesizer.
- is a very sketchy port of a graphical effect made by a friend of a friend to Linux.
- is a security addon for older Linux kernels, which I have improved from unuseable to almost beta (don't get confused by the 2.0 version number :-)).
- is a version of my Terminal to boot from ROM, made by KenYap.
- is a serial terminal software which should work on any 8086, with builtin ANSI subset support.
- is something to create thumbnails for my homepage (needs further editing of the html by hand, but is nice anyway).
- is something for Linux that tries to maintain a zoomed/magnified copy of a selected window in realtime, also supposed to be useable via network. Port of a tool which was intended for network window watching in a classroom so that the pupils would see what the teacher is doing, so that they can follow her example...
PS: Although not many people need serial terminals, FreeDOS "customers" definitely may be among them.
