 Protocol Analyser  This is a DOS program which allows you to eavesdrop on half-duplex serial comms using a single serial port. This was originally a very simple program developed for personal use, but has since grown to include autobauding, time stamping and save to file. The program has been split into two parallel versions: PA.COM, which uses 8086 code only, and PA586.COM which uses the Pentium Time Stamp Counter to provide more accurate timing information. pa.zip (14 KB)

MS DOS DOS Utilities  A number of miscellaneous utilities which run under MS-DOS. There's a simple but powerful menu program, a file find utility with many useful features, utilities for checking and setting serial port settings, and for taking the CRC-32 and MD5 of files. If you still use Allen Bradley 6200 programming software, there's a small TSR which can be used to prevent it from beeping every time you do anything at all. dosutils.zip (13 KB)
