--MY FAVORITE DOS STUFF--

Below is the homepage for Dvpeg, probably the fastest *freeware* image viewer for DOS that I'm aware of.

http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/dvpeg/

(I prefer the simplified version because it has fewer bugs, but it only supports jpeg format though.)

You can customize it to your liking. It offers a nice amount of command line switches and other tweaks you can change in the setup.

*Note* It doesn't handle progressive format jpegs. It will come up with an error for unsupported marker type. These are pretty rare files though, maybe like 1 in 100 jpegs, if that.

On my desktop I actually made a shortcut to Dvpeg. It's a very quick, no frills way of browsing through your jpegs. I made a batch file to start it the way I want every time, and I locked the resolution at 640x480 and enabled shrinking so I don't have to scroll the pictures. Works just as fast as most windows progs, but without all the bloat.

If you try out Dvpeg, remember that hitting "N" will go to the next picture, "P" the previous one. Hehe.

If I had to rank the best Freeware picture viewers for DOS:

(1) Dvpeg

http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/dvpeg/

(2) PictView 1.95

http://www.pictview.com/pv195prev.zip

(3) Lxpic

http://hplx.pgdn.de/

(4) PixView

http://www.cs.unibo.it/~rossi/pixview/

(5) Picem

http://www.afn.org/~afn04143/picem32.zip

...I might also mention that DOS had some pretty cool *shareware* image viewers. They're all fully functioning despite being shareware. In terms of quality they blow the freeware programs right out of the water.

Here's how I would rank them:

(1) QPV

http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/pc/windows/winsock-indstate/graphics/qpv17a.zip

(2) Sea

ftp://ftp.sac.sk/pub/sac/graph/sea13.zip

(3) QuickView Pro (plays audio, video, and mp3s)

http://www.multimediaware.com/

(4) PV

http://www.multimediaware.com/

(5) Vpic (no jpeg support)

ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/gifutil/vpic61e.zip

From the official F-Prot forum:

The last definition files we created that were compatible with F-Prot for DOS 3.16f are from beginning of February 2009

Here's a download link to the LAST F-Prot for DOS

I am new to this message board, the first thing I would do is share with you some of my old DOS programs.

Attached are COUNTER.ZIP and ADDRBOOK.ZIP. Both run OK even in Windows XP without compatibility issues.

What is COUNTER:

Digital Counter

Version 1.0 (Release 2000.1)

Developed by Boo Khan Ming (from Malaysia)

E-mail: bookm@tm.net.my

WWW: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Horizon/3409

DESCRIPTION: This is a multi-purpose digital counter (capable of count up to 65535).

USAGE: To increment the counter value once, press SPACE BAR.

To open menu screen, press F1.

You have options to change the color appearance, and to reset the counter value.

Use arrow keys, ENTER and ESC to navigate through the menus.

TIPS: You can restore the previous counter value by modifying COUNTER.INI

(change 'AutomaticResetDisabled' setting from default 'no' to 'yes).

Thank you for trying out this small snippet!

Hope you find it useful.

Any feedback are welcome.

In addition to this small snippet, I have something more professional, the ADDRBOOK.ZIP

Read what reviewer said about this menu- and/or mouse-driven program.

Office address and phone database.

These little .COM program are useful in your batch file.

PRESS.COM - Wait until user press any key to continue (Another version)

CLICK.COM - You may have well heard "Press any key to continue", but this one offers "Press left mouse button to continue..."

BEEP.COM - As its name implies...

BIOSDATE.COM - Print on the screen BIOS manufacture date.

I am back!

Specifically designed for my company, it remains portable and generic. Why? With a text file for input, this program can be yours!

NTMON.EXE is just 75KB, no add-ons needed. It is intended as a shell of PING results up to 500 URLs/IPs in a scrollable listbox with ONLINE/OFFLINE tag next to all items.

Well. You might come up with the text file (NTMON.TXT) in this 2-line format:

DESCRIPTION

URL/IP

DESCRIPTION

URL/IP

...

...

...

(up to 500 pairs)

Then, just start the program, wait for the dialog to appear while it is pinging the list in the background (or foreground, depending on your OS).

It is simply useful to keep track a list of regular URLs/IPs (to ping) and show it in a scrollable+searchable+sorted listbox with ONLINE/OFFLINE results.

Now, things to consider.

It has been tested on Windows XP SP3, and Windows 7 32-bit (various editions).

Under your Windows, besides a NTMON.TXT for input, NTMON.EXE requires a third-party executable from Microsoft to act as the engine.

Please copy from your Windows' SYSTEM32 folder, the PING.EXE, to the same folder as NTMON.EXE.

The attached NTMON.ZIP already included the Windows 7 32-bit version of PING.EXE. Using incorrect version of PING.EXE may resulting in incorrect ONLINE/OFFLINE status.

When ONLINE and when OFFLINE? OFFLINE is shown either when PING.EXE is not in the application path, URL/IP naming convention is incorrect, or no Internet access on both ends.

When ONLINE then is very clear. NTMON.EXE ping twice to confirm at least a reply is received.

If you need this program, please feel free to use it. Unlike prior MS-DOS programs, I haven't include the TP7 source in the compressed package.

Thanks!

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Please set the properties of this MS-DOS program to run in 80x50 text mode.

Dos does not mean "command line", nor CLI, it means DOS.

XP and 7, last time I checked, were part of the NT family of OS and not of the 9x/Me one (DOS based).

So, nice tool :), but maybe posted in the "wrong" place :unsure:

My mind had been dizzy as the Windows family keeps emerging (or I am the one to blame for not catching up the technology :wacko: )

Truly, but sadly, I have blurred the line between CMD.EXE (or COMMAND.EXE) and the real MS-DOS. Thank you for your correction, really! :yes:

I can't find better place to share this program. While my program fits the thread, it was the descriptions that misled many.

I even doubt that there is a PING.EXE provided by earlier version of Windows, or MS-DOS itself.

Glad that you like the program. (You've actually downloaded and tried it, haven't you?)

Sure I did :), but by "nice", I meant "nice" ;), not that I personally liked it :w00t:

I mean, no offence intended, but to do similar things in NT based systems I have always used a few lines in one of my half@§§ed batches, example:

@ECHO OFF
CLS
SET to_ping=8.8.8.8
SET Today=%Date%
SET Today=%Today:/=_%
:loop
FOR /F "tokens=5 delims==, " %%A IN ('ping -n 1 %to_ping% ^|FIND "Pacchetti"') DO (
ECHO.
IF %%A.==0. (
ECHO %Date%-%time% NO_PING %to_ping%
REM Optional log
REM ECHO %Date%-%time% NO_PING %to_ping%>>%Today%.log
)
::Poorman's WAIT
::Very roughly 60 second intervals
::it would be much beeter to use AT, SCHTASKS or any of the n third party "WAIT" tools
FOR /L %%B in (0,1,4100) DO PING -n 1 127.0.1.1>nul
GOTO :loop

JFYI, Win9x/Me have the PING command allright :thumbup :

What I can say. The difference between yours (a batch scripts) and mine (a ping shell) is the latter is more **presentable**.

It was not difficult to create the menu and dialog UI as I managed to accomplish in one working day in office.

However, in most cases, a batch script is more than enough.

:thumbup

Thank you very much for your plenty of resources.

I have tried the Windows 95 (or WFW 3.2?)'s PING.EXE but was not working under my Windows 7 32-bit.

Also have had a look at MS Client.

To make this clear, the NTMON.EXE was intended to run in command-line subject to the availability of PING.EXE in your Windows (from Win95 up to Win7, although the program wasn't tested in earlier versions of the OS), even though the program itself was entirely a pure MS-DOS program (written using Turbo Pascal 7.0 dated 1992).

In Win9x, the PING window will not run hidden; therefore, a series of calls to PING.EXE will result in a very disturbing flashing of a DOS window. For this reason, two years ago I have written a utility that can ping only one IP or address repeatedly and notify through message box (and speech, if enabled) when the ping failed. It uses IcmpCreateFile(), IcmpSendEcho(), IcmpCloseHandle() plus WSAStartup(), WSACleanup() and a couple other functions, which makes PING.EXE unnecessary. However, the utility only runs under Windows (definitely 9x/XP, not sure about Vista/7/8). If I remembered what I did back then, I could probably modify it to loop through a list of IPs/addresses, but I'm not sure what the usefulness of such tool would be and neither do I feel like coding right now. If anyone thinks it'd be needed as is, say so and I'll try attaching it here.

From the TRIUS forums:

TRIUS no longer supports or answers questions regarding this program, but other users visiting these forums might.
