TSR is an abbreviation for the "terminate and stay resident" capacity offered by some software programs. There is much confusion about TSRs, because to some people it has become the name of an entire category of software. Functionality has been confused with implementation. Borland International Inc recognizes the problem and is prepared to offer solutions throughout the evolution of TSR programs that will help smooth the transition from one operating environment to another. There are three ways TSRs work. In one case, products such as Sidekick take over the main application for specific tasks. Second, the TSR actually runs in the background, In the third, there is multitasking possible, allowing the user to work his work processor while a spell test, for example, is being done. It is suggested that users forget about TSR and investigate software solutions such as an integrated desktop management system under OS-2.
