JdeBP's 32-bit Command Interpreter

1.1.2 (API 1.0.3)
Release date: 
Tuesday, 29 December, 2009



Authors/Port authors:

A Pure 32-bit command interpreter that is a replacement for the 16-bit CMD that is supplied with IBM OS/2, allowing one to finally replace one of the 16-bit vestiges that remains in OS/2 Warp.

Inside the packages, also the developing libraries, the headers and the API's documentation.

Along with 4OS2, JdeBP 32-bit is definitely the most alternate popular command line interpreter for OS/2!

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Unicode Console API Runtime DLLs (29/12/2009) Readme/What's new
The 32-bit Unicode Console API Runtime DLLs for IBM OS/2. Install these if your application uses the 32-bit Unicode Console API and you are running 32-bit IBM OS/2 (i.e. version 2.0 or later). Instructions are in README.TXT.
Unicode Console API with developers' toolkit (29/12/2009) Readme/What's new
A 32-bit Unicode Console API, with Developers' Toolkit, which allows one to eliminate one more 16-bit vestige from OS/2: the 16-bit thunking code that has to be included in any otherwise 32-bit application that uses the existing 16-bit Console API that is supplied with IBM OS/2 (a.k.a. the VIO, MOU, and KBD subsystems) even in the very latest versions. By using the 32-bit Unicode Console API, applications can be made purely 32-bit (as long as they don't call any other 16-bit APIs and don't use the 16-bit Console API internally within their compiler's runtime libraries, of course). Also included is an entrypoint-compatible replacement for the broken 32TEXT package from IBM that used to be on the DevCon CD-ROMs. Instructions are in README.TXT.
JdeBP's 32-bit Command Interpreter v. 1.1.2 (Command Interpreter - API 1.0.3, 12/1/2004) Readme/What's new
A Pure 32-bit command interpreter that is a replacement for the 16-bit CMD that is supplied with IBM OS/2, allowing one to finally replace one of the 16-bit vestiges that remains in OS/2 Warp; along with a suite of ancillary utilities (ANSI, ATDOWN, BEEP, BRIGHTBG, CLS, CMDLOAD, COLOUR, COPY, COPYPLUS, COPYSTD, DATE, DEL, DELAY, DESCRIBE, DETACH, DIR, ECHODOT, ECHOS, ERASE, FREE, HELPMSG, KEYLOCKS, LABEL, LINES, MD, MKDIR, MORE, MORESTD, MOVE, PAUSE, PRINTENV, RD, REM, REN, RENAME, RMDIR, START, TIME, TRUENAME, TYPE, VOL, WPSARC, and ZDIR). The command interpreter comes with a choice of three front ends (TTY, TUI, and GUI), and supports various enhancements not in IBM's 16-bit CMD, such as implicit environment variables, easily nested command scripts, subroutines (GOSUB/RETURN), and directory stacks. The command interpreter and utilities support long filenames, deep directory trees, ISO/IEC 9445-1:1990 (POSIX 1003.1) timezones, operation until the year 2106, and automatic unattended changes to and from dayli.
