Re: 32bit TSR

Re: 32bit TSR

Yes I understand DOS is not 100% ideal for a commercial application but the benefits do out weight the negatives Some of the benefits I have found is > older hardware can be reused saving retailer money > Speed of loading (retailers do not have to wait for Windows to load before they can even start ...

Re: 32bit TSR

Thanks angros47 sometimes I feel that I’m fighting s loosing battle everyone keeps saying “oh use Windows it’s easier” but it’s not always the best solution in some cases. For example my PoS systems. I will admit I do have a Windows .net version of the application to work on brand new hardware but t...

What is better screenlock/unlock or paging

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could explain for me the difernace between Screenlock and unlock and paging. I was told for older machine (600MHz with 256-512mb ram) that screen paging is the best way to do graphics but then others are telling me to use the screenlock and unlock functions. So cou...

Re: 32bit TSR

Not really 10 years ago as I have very stable 16bit pos application writen in PDS 7.1. But we move to windows and all our apps are now done in .net. But I want to relaunch a low end system Hence the thread now. I do like Linux especially the fact that I can run my FreeBASIC app on the CLI and use th...

Re: 32bit TSR

The only reason why I was thinking about DOS is I know the commands how to set up lan cards etc

In Linux I can not even work out how to auto start my program (in dos I can just add the path to the end of the autoexec.bat)

Re: 32bit TSR

Angros47 is correct I am limited to hardware at the moment as customers still want functions (like live database links to mysql) but still want to use the existing hardware (most are 600MHz machines with 512mb ram bf to have windows and the newest version of my pos on that is slows down to a crawel)...

Re: 32bit TSR

I was thinking about having a trigger file so if it shows up the PoS would display a message to the user just saying updating files... and then perform the database updates Would that be a better option? I would love to have Mysql support in dos but I’m not the clever to work out the mysql library a...

Re: 32bit TSR

I’m open to ideas all I’m trying to do is find a way of moving files from a local machine to server with out locking up the main program while the files copy. I would need to move the files when ever they show up (say 30 seconds after they are created) as the files are stored on a RAM drive (for spe...

FreeDOS is still alive But that does not have multitasking support yet.

So in the older dos how did a TSR function?

32bit TSR

Hi all,
Is it possible to create a TSR with FreeBASIC?

What I would like to do is create a program that runs in the background of dos to copy files from the local pc to a shared folder on the server.

Is this possible?

Re: Best Database practice

I wonder what is happening now, with csv files, when you have changes on both sides. Do you have some sort of merge/sync mechanism. And what are your hardware specs. You can run mysql/mariadb even on low memory machines with the right configuration without slowing down anything. Most effective opti...
