  • How to interface to FOSSIL driver?

    I will not delete this topic, as I did my earlier ones.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction for interfacing to
    FOSSIL drivers from a PB/DOS 3.5 program?

    Any help will be GRATEFULLY received!

    Cordially,

    There are a couple of likely prospects in the Downloads area:

      Tom,

      There's no need to reply to this - it's just that I realized in
      these wee AM hours that I never thanked you for your pointing
      me to the right area. That's why I'm posting this now, because
      your reference to the PB downloads section found me an archive
      that told me EVERYTHING I needed to be able to interface to
      FOSSIL drivers from within my DOS BBS Doors. The name of the
      author of the library escapes me, but I believe the archive was
      called "pbfossl.zip", or something akin. So, he deserves a lot
      of credit, also. With that archive, I was successfully programming
      FOSSIL driver stuff with PB/DOS 3.5 within 10 minutes of
      downloading it. I didn't directly use the library, as it was
      designed for the X00 driver, whereas I use a much more modern
      driver (ADF.EXE); however, its techniques were still portable.
      They were nothing more than standard DOS services, supported by
      DOS....hmmmm.....4.0 and up? Once I read about them, I looked
      up the interrupt in my Rolf Brown (sp?) listings, and got more
      info.

      Thanks, Tom (and to the author of that archive).

      Cordially,
