I'm doing some work in DOS but don't have experience with its environment. Does anyone know an editor that's better than EDIT or maybe an IDE that would work with FASM and one that fits on one floppy (or can be easily transported in pieces using floppys)?

Also, some DOS programs work with mouse support in Windows (like EDIT), but booting into DOS on a machine with no Window's installed, I don't have the mouse. Can anyone tell me what files I have to copy and changes I have to make to autoexec.bat to activate the mouse?

Thanks.

when working in dos i used ASMEdit.

to allow mouse you have to have some mouse driver. Then just, i driver is .SYS file list it in config.sys, if it is .exe file list it in autoexec.bat

Thanks, I'll check out ASMEdit.

For mouse, I found "CuteMouse" which is a small executable that itstalls ps/2 mouse with wheel support.

For another dos editor, you can try SETEDIT Very Happy , which has FASM assembly syntax hiliting (made by me! Wink ), and MANY other features, supports multiwindow - huge multi- MegaByte files, and too many to mention in this post. the website is here:

Hello!
madmatt, how to transfer filenames in command line parameters in SETEDIT? I mean to transfer paramerers like in .bat files: fasm.exe %1.asm %1.com,
or like in Volkov Commander`s menus: fasm.exe !.asm !.!

Yeah, DOS Navigator - I wrote the fasm 1.0 all within it. And the interface of fasmw's editor interface was inspired by DN's one.

I posted a seperate thread but have not got a reply so thought I would try here. I would like to be able to compile the sources to dos navagator as I would like to do some enhancements to it. but I have not been able to get the configuration file to work. It is such a good program that I belive some enhancements would be welcomed at least that is my opinion anyway if anyone has any answers would be greatly apreciated

I tried Dos Navigator and it was great,
I'll have to edit my Norton Commander bragging above & remove the "bar none" stuff.

NC.EXE is all you need to run Norton Commander (98362 bytes)
DN151.ZIP is 786272 unzipped ( > 2 meg & > floppy unzipped)
but the .zip does transfer on a floppy from machine to machine.

I made FSPLIT14.COM & FCOPY.COM which splits up large files into
14,014 byte chunks, then unites them, for floppy moves to other machines.
I'll have to check if it's uploadable at my web site?

VC.COM (Volkov Commander) is all i need ever. Smile
It has most part of NC`s features, and the best feature for me is it`s size: 65069 bytes (44070 bytes packed with upx1.25w). But no sources anywhere.

I used to use AsmEdit a lot, especially for its great memory management and exellent online help/documentation (which is a bit outdated now).

Then one day, several yearas ago, I ran into DOS Navigator, learned to love this app and got used to it.

I have several improvements suggestions for DN: Better RAM/XMS management (supports "only" 64MB right now) and similar for the HDD stuff: It only supports up to 2Gbytes when in direct disc access mode what makes it virtual useless on newer + bigger hard drives.

http://short.stop.home.att.net/freesoft/fileman1.htm (DC-SK.ZIP)
http://www.geocities.com/jadoxa/tde/index.html (latest TDE -- 5.1q)
http://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/goldies.html (TDE 4.0 -- 16-bit)
http://www.colargol.tihlde.hist.no/~kurtg/index2.html (ALAB 1.3.3 source)

Dos Controller (Soren Kragh) is one file manager I use often because it's so small and has it's own built-in editor (although I prefer TDE for text editing). I used to use Tutordo a lot, but alas no more. BTW, try ALAB (IDE which comes with full Pascal sources).

DOS Navigator 1.51 is free (since 1999 but now discontinued) and has its own undelete and disk editor (unlike the ones below), plus CD player, terminal/modem dialer, Tetris, etc. This is the original DN, where all offshoots started from.

DOS Navigator-Open Source Project is quite good, too, still updated: 6.4.0 supports DOS (real or DPMI); DN/2 1.51.10b16 supports OS/2 or Win32.

Necromancer's DOS Navigator (or newest beta) is very good too: fully 32-bit (so no undel, disk ed), built-in disassembler, LFNs in ZIPs, XXencode, etc., is still updated, and supports Win32, DOS (using DOS/32a DPMI extender), or Linux. (There's probably an even newer beta version by the time you read this!).

So, choose your favorite (or download 'em all!). It's practically a must-have piece of software. Very Happy

P.S. Get CuteMouse here.

I'm sure you can find out the file "Mouse.com" on your computer. However, if not, you can search it in internet (but i see this file is very common use). The simple way is only run Mouse.com directly on your command line at the first time U want using mouse, mouse driver will automatically install on your PC...

No thanks. Sad

Why the hell:
- Should I use stuff from M$ Confused
- A mouse driver should need > 100 KB ("My HD has 300 GB" ???) ? Confused Confused

Use CTMOUSE (works, needs porting to FASM) Wink

1. FASMD (Thanks Tomasz, please continue development)
2. Kinesics Use the Win32 "console" version on HX-DOS Extender (more stable than many native DOS editors)

You obviously don't really need the mouse to edit textfiles, but some people do prefer it (ugh).

Anyways, I did make a list of DOS editors in another topic on this forum, so if anyone is curious, take a look.
