Well, there is an alternative which is pocketdos from www.pocketdos.com - it is not a free programme.

Well that was simple enough! It works with quotes, as you suggested. (Thanks for your patience.)

Now, the problem seems to be with my eyes. The Dos screen fills only a third of the available screen space.

What is the "full screen" toggle supposed to do [alt-ent]? It doesn't appear to change anything on my screen?

Text is uncomfortably small to read, so program usage is less than ideal. Is there a Dos emulator that utilizes the full screen on a Jornada 720?

Thanks again, Dave


well, that's what this poll for!! to have a native hpc version that of course will run in full screen. get more hpc fellows to vote!!

I don't think there is a way arround this as this is a PPC application with that screen size. I have tried to jiggle GAPI 3.02, but no luck.

You could have a look at PocketDOS.com - there they have a full screen dos emulator (not free though).

Another option is BOCHS 2.1.1, but I cannot find the sourcefile anywhere as the mamaichs site is gone? Anyone still has these sourcefiles?

This is why we need a new H/PC version of pDOSBox. VOTE, folks, please!!
84 votes in over 6 months. It doesn't exactly scream "we want this" to the developer I'm afraid.
Reaching the requested 100 in a week would have been one thing. However at this rate it'll be another three months before we get to 100, I don't think the developer had a 9 month wait in mind.

I would consider this a lost oportunity

I found this post a few days ago when it got revived by someone else that posted in it. if these kind of things are sort of made sticky on the main webpage somehow, it would surely make things go a lot quicker. I, not unlike a lot of others, do not spend a lot of time digging through the forums for topics I can reply to. As a result, numerous threads are not even seen. Personally I check the main page a few times a day, and when I see a post that seems interesting, I will look at it.

This had FP news coverage on the site at the time, and realistically there is a limit on how many sticky threads we can create. I see what you are saying of course. However it is still 6 months later... so the benefits of reviving it are... limited at best.

But surely the pDOSBox developer doing the port isn't the only option - DOSBox is GPL'ed after all, so anyone is free to take a stab at porting it to HPC (though I haven't been able to find the pdosbox sources on his site, he's obligated to releasse them if someone asks, right)

Sure!

And I think he must also make it easy to retrieve the sources. In other words, if the package is GPL'ed, the sources must be public somehow. In other words, the developer cannot say:
"Ok, this package is GPL'ed. If you want the sources you should ask me, politely, and maybe, if I am not in bad taste, I'll let you have them... someday."
