These are DOS-executable self-contained programs each occupying a single binary file. No use is made of external software. This ensures portability between DOS/Windows machines.
There is a brief one-line description following each program's name.
Approximate file sizes are from 25 to 70 kilobytes. Download, or to run without downloading to check program content, just click on a program's underlined name.
Download from here to a Windows Desktop icon or collect programs in a common Windows folder of your chosen name. There's no un-zipping inconvenience. Programs can be run immediately after download.
With other machine operating systems, programs can be run under DOS Emulators.
To run a program click on its desktop icon. If the program does not entirely fill the screen then look along the top tool bar and click on the button which expands the display outwards.
The mouse is not available when the program is running full screen. Program control is entirely via the keyboard. Close the program from within by hitting either the 'E(xit)' or 'Q(uit)' key when displayed in the menu on bottom line 25. You will be immediately returned to the desktop.
If the program aborts into DOS due to entry of 'impossible' data, to return to Windows Desktop type the DOS command 'EXIT' against the C>prompt followed by the enter/return key. Or to run the program again type the program's name alongside the C>prompt. No harm will have been caused to your computer, operating system or to the program itself.
Remember, when in DOS and the C>prompt is showing, the typed DOS 'EXIT' command followed by the 'Enter' or 'Return' key, will always return you to the Windows DeskTop. No need to get lost!
