Summary
  • The $69.95 Top-DOS RAM-resident utility program from FrontRunner Development Corp is the best all-around DOS extender of the six utilities evaluated. The program's standard features include: command recall and editing; recall of one scrolled screen; file location; and command aliasing that allows DOS command re-naming or custom commands. Features added to DOS are: automatic command or file-name completion; Move, which copies and deletes files in a single step; Whereis, which finds all files matching entered specifications; and Treecopy, which copies sub-directories without changing their tree structure. DOS command enhancements include: improved Dir, Copy, and Delete commands; and command-line parameters for sorted directory listings. Top-DOS adds features that DOS should have: a macro maker; a quick pop-up editor; and a visual tree directory. Top-DOS is very fast and almost completely transparent.
