 DOS70 v2.0 - MS-DOS 7.x Extension Routines   Cristi Streng 11.02.1998

Модуль DOS70 расширяет стандартные средства Borland Pascal 7.0 за счет поддержки новых возможностей MS-DOS 7.0, входящей в состав Windows 95. Включает в себя поддержку длинных имен файлов, сервис виртуальной машины, новые функции MS-DOS. Приведено подробное руководство по использованию и несколько примеров.
DOS70 is a powerful, easy-to-use Turbo Pascal unit, implementing MS-DOS 7.x extensions and file handling routines.
- over 40 long filenames functions and procedures
- over 10 functions and procedures implementing virtual machine services
- over 20 general MS-DOS functions and procedures
- text file interface
- complete, comprehensive manual
- DOS 7.1 specific functions.
- full source & examples included.

+---------------------+ | DOS70 Version 2.0 | +---------------------+ A powerful, very easy-to-use Borland/Turbo Pascal unit, implementing DOS 7.x extensions and specific file routines. Copyright (C) by Cristi Streng February 11th, 1998 -------------------------------------------------------------- WHY DOS70 ? ----------- MS-DOS 7.0 (included in Windows 95) was the first version of DOS that was capable of creating and using files with long names. Long names are names for files or directories that exceed the standard 8.3 format. I wrote this unit because I wanted to use Long Filenames (LFNs) in a Turbo Pascal 7 program (I am usually running Borland Pascal 7.0 in a Windows 95 window). I have included over 40 functions and procedures for LFNs, over 10 Virtual Machine functions and procedures and also over 20 general MS-DOS 7.x functions. DOS70 now compiles with Borland Pascal 7.0 for Windows. This package contains: - The DOS70 unit, including: - Retrieve Windows (and DOS) version. - Long File Name (LFN) functions for opening, reading, writing, searching files with long names. - LFN functions for file date, size and attributes. - LFN functions for working with directories (folders) and paths. - New MS-DOS functions that appeared in version 7.0 (Windows 95). - New MS-DOS functions in version 7.1 (Windows 95 OSR2 = Win96). - Virtual Machine services: Change window titles, Close-Aware applications. - Text file interface. - The DOS70 unit with PChar strings instead of standard Pascal strings. - A complete manual describing the whole unit. Please read MANUAL.TXT or MANUALP.TXT before using the unit. - Full source of the units (with standard and PChar strings) - Ten example files (five with PChar strings, five with Pascal strings). - This file (README.TXT). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ---------------- I am a Computer Science student at "Emanuil Gojdu" High School, Oradea, Romania (I'm in the last grade of secondary school). I am fond of UNIX, Windows 95, and DOS programming in C++ and Pascal. If you have anything to do with programming (and you have some spare time), feel free to contact me. Send me an e-mail, or a postcard. If you enjoy using this unit, please let me know. I would appreciate if you send me a copy of your program that uses this unit. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- EXAMPLES -------- The original text was: > In this package you will find three examples. I haven't > included more examples because I think the documentation > is very comprehensive and it's very easy to figure out > how various functions work. Now there are ten examples, so I think the above text doesn't apply any more... If you have created an example program for DOS70, send it to me and I'll gladly put it on my homepage and into the package (or into a special package containing examples only, it depends on how many examples you send...). Example 1: demonstrates you how to use various functions included in the DOS70 unit. Example 2: searches for files matching the specified file mask in a directory and its subdirectories. (Try 'EXAMPLE2 C:\ *' :-) Example 3: demonstrates how to use virtual machine services. Example 4: demonstrates how to use the text file interface (opens a file, then writes to and reads from the file). Example 5: demonstrates the use of the ExtDiskFree/ExtDiskSize functions (works only with DOS 7.1 - Windows 95 OSR 2 aka Windows 96). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- THANKS TO --------- David Parsons <david.parsons@virgin.net> for creating the text file interface for DOS70 Arnoud Lambers <mta-mm@vip.cybercity.dk> for porting DOS70 to TP 5.5 Ming Au <s.m.au@twi.tudelft.nl> for showing me a few bugs (and for giving me a few patches) of previous versions of DOS70 (check out his homepage: http://www.twi.tudelft.nl/~tw021027/ ) ... and last but not the least thanks to Ralf Brown <ralf@pobox.com> - for creating the wonderful Interrupt List (ftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/info/inter*.zip) -------------------------------------------------------------- MISC ---- System requirements: Windows 95, Borland/Turbo Pascal 5.5/6.0/7.0.
