QS-UTIL 1.0 · 1994-08-18 · Shareware Program Package
QS-UTIL is a package of very useful DOS utility programs
(a DOS "tool box"). Some QS-UTIL programs are most suitable
in batch file programs (BAT-files), while others are intended to
be used directly from the command line level. The following
programs are included in the QS-UTIL
|BEEP||Produces beeps on the speaker|
|BOOT||Performs a warm or cold boot of the PC|
|DATEINF||Returns date information in exit code|
|DELAY||Delays execution a specified interval of time (see Note below)|
|EQHO||Enhanced ECHO batch file subcommand|
|KEYIN||Enters characters into the keyboard buffer|
|READFLD||Reads field from keyboard and writes it on screen|
|READSEL||Reads selection from a list and returns its number in exit code|
|RESTHDC||Restores hard disk configuration from diskette|
|SAVEHDC||Saves hard disk configuration on diskette|
|SCREEN||General screen output utility|
|TIMEINF||Returns time information in exit code|
The package also includes a sample batch file, QS-MENU.BAT, that demonstrates how some of the QS-UTIL programs are used in a menu application.
If you are a batch file programmer, you will find that QS-UTIL offers you many of those nice features that you have always wanted, but never found in DOS.
The registration fee for QS-UTIL is US$ 15 (or DKK 90 or equivalent in a convertible currency). In return, you will get the "QS-UTIL Reference Manual" with detailed descriptions of all QS-UTIL programs.
Note: It has been found that DELAY cannot run under some versions of Windows (it produces a Timer function failed! error message). If you encounter this problem, you should use the newer DELAY2 instead. It is also included in the QS-UTIL.ZIP file.
