    Boy am I embarrassed, upon further testing it seems that PBDos' EMS does work with
    Dosemu 1.4 . I did try to test it before posting, but I only tried it from the IDE which was
    using all of the EMS (only 2 MB) for itself. I fear that I had already assumed that it was still
    broken and thus jumped to a hasty conclusion. Oh well, the good news is that it seems to
    work. further testing is certainly in order.

    sorry about that

    Which, to get back on the topic of the forum, I've been able to get PBDOS 3.5 running under Linux in a DOSEMU session.

    Sorry, scratch that, apparently Japheth's drivers no longer work in DOSEmu. I have no idea
    when that happened, but it has been a long time since I've used them together. Will look into
    this further when time permits.

    I have since moved the BBS back to Windows Server and EzyCom so I can most likely use that code. Will have to check it out and see what happens.

    I would have bet a lot of money against any new users of PB/DOS in the year two thousand eight.
    Heck, you should have told me that before

    It's not a very good screenshot as it has been scaled down a bit. I can email the original full-size screenshot to anyone that would be interested. Or better still, the screenshot can be seen at http://muzzlethem.org/robert/files/pbdos_linux.png

    started a topic FOSSIL Library for PowerBASIC

    FOSSIL Library for PowerBASIC

    Hi all! Yet another new thread started by a newbie

    I am a BBS sysop and am wanting to write some communications type programs using my new copy of PBDOS. I was wondering if anyone has a recommendations for a DECENT FOSSIL communications library for PBDOS that is relatively easy to use.

    Any pointers/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
