Speed up programs running with cmd

10 posts in this topic

I use some 16 bit program from cmd, but they run very slow.

Is there a way to speed that up ?

They are small programs that use little resources.

Thanks,

Andy

Do you consider XP to be an old O.S. ?

I will give you more details.

When you use Start /Run you can enter cmd.exe and get a simulated DOS environment.

I run some 16 bit programs from there.

The name of one of the programs is tasm.exe.

That is a program that assembles 16 bit code.

When I run that program it takes 3 seconds to complete it's task.

It should be taking less than .5 seconds.

If there is any other info you need, please let me know.

Really? 3 seconds is too slow?

A.D.D. Much?

What do you mean by A.D.D. Much ?

Attention Deficit Disorder.

Honestly when that app was first released it had to take a lot longer than that to run.

Is 2.5 seconds gained worth the hours you have already wasted searching for a way to make that app a breath shorter?

People have absolutely NO patience today.

IMHO things like this is the exact reason we have windows 8 being rammed down our throats.

I have plenty of patience. I like to make things better.

Win 8 isn't being forced on anyone. You didn't go buy it did you ? :-)

Later gator,

Dumb question... Which version Of TASM (Turbo Assembler)? Sounds like strictly the DOS version.

In any case, 3 seconds isn't bad. Have you tried COMMAND.COM instead of CMD.EXE?
