5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced programming (for its time)... but good for historic purposes 31 July 2006
By Joseph T. Page II - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been a DOS user for decades (? - yeah, decades...), and I've always wondered "How were those commands written?" Doing my own small utility commands in assembly, I could never reach the level of "code tightness" that the DOS prompt displayed... "Why is my COPY command 50K larger than their DOS COPY command?!?"

This book showed me why... Ray Duncan's book must have been the DOS programming bible during its time. For those wanting to learn assembly, and the art of writing good programs, this is a definite buy - since DOS is nearly extinct, the price of the book will be minimal. If you're just starting with assembly, this will give you a reason to write ASM, with actual examples that work.

DOS may be dead(?) but there are still lessons to be learned from its code.

This is definitely THE BOOK if you want to do some cool programming in DOS. No matter if you find yourself in the DOS Debugger or in Pascal or C++, you can easely do very advanced things by playing around with the interrupts. This book shows you excactly what you need.
