the Dosbox configuration parameters may be imported to DosBox-X on a case by case basis.
NOTE TAB -- HTML Text Editor
The award-winning NOTE TAB EDITOR has helped me tremendously with the periodic upgrading of this web-site.
It is also great for printing Text Documents. In fact, because of its ability to intstruct a printer to print with a specific
user-selected fixed width font, you can print plain text documents DOS style. NOTE TAB also does something that
Microsoft's NOTEPAD plus a lot of other Windows text editors don't do -- it supports PAGE BREAKS! €ureka!
Softmaker - Office Suite (Free Version)
An alternative to the Windows Office Suite, offered COMPLETELY FREE AND PERMANENTLY USABLE.
There is no trial period, and no need to buy a license or anything else. The office suite is presented in a
downloadable 59-megabyte (give/take) installer file which includes TextMaker (Word Processor),
PlanMaker (spreadsheet) and Softmaker Presentations (Powerpoint equivalant). Double €ureka!
Know Your Bytes - A Graphic Chart
Easily tells you the difference between Kilobytes and Yottabytes. Chart also illustrates the visual impact
of exotic fonts, in this case "CrackerMan" for the the Pac-Man characters. The chart can be used as a
demonstration tool in any computer-related course.
