USBDOS Help by TomCat
Preface: a slide from my previous seminar
|1. the OS|
Make any of your USB drives bootable.
You can do it by getting an image from freedos.org
but Rufus make it much more easier: rufus.ie.
|2. the File Manager|
Volkov Commander 4.99.08 alpha
by pressing F4 you can run an extarnal file editor,
this is my settings in the config file VCEDIT.EXT
ASM:FASMD !.! COM:HIEW !.!
You can download it from here: vc.kiev.ua.
|3. the Assembler|
You can compile comfortably from FASMD editor by pressing F9.
To run FASMD you need DPMI host, the best one is HX DPMI,
you can find it at the webarchive: japheth.de/HX.html
put it into your AUTOEXEC.BAT with these options: HDPMI32.EXE -r -v
Download the assembler from here: flatassembler.net.
|4. the File Editor|
You can switch between view modes by Enter key.
This is the best tool to examine the compiled code
what more, you can edit it by pressing F3.
Download the editor from here: hiew.ru.
|5. the Debugger|
Open Watcom Debugger 1.9
To run WD.EXE you need a lot of memory,
don't forget to include HIMEMX.EXE and JEMM386.EXE
in CONFIG.SYS as a device.
a mouse driver, like CuteMouse is useful too.
Download the debugger from here: wd.zip.
As a bonus here is my latest custom SETUP.DBG file, grab it!
|+1. the Extra|
