DOS Programming Utilities
March 6, 2006
Coded in an extinct shareware assembly language known as WASM, these now almost-archaic DOS utilities are still finding use with hardware and programming aficionados.
BIOS Reporter displays much of the (copious) system information available in BIOS data area; it can be run as pop-up TSR to report changes to BIOS values while a second program is running.
ScanCode Show reports scan and ASCII codes as well as keyboard BIOS values for any keystroke, in scrolling display.
KeyCount is another TSR, monitoring keyboard activity for security reasons, or for measuring productivity. A hotkey combination is used to present the number of key-presses made after program activation; program may be activated by hotkey combination or from the command line or a batch file.
