Well, the only real problem with it is that it hasn't been polished and tested enough. And that's probably due to the MASM-only sources (although as mentioned, a rough A86 port exists). The more the merrier, esp. an assembly version! :-)

I do mean FreeDOS' "RxCOPY", which is what they call it (don't ask me why). It doesn't have anything to do with RxDOS, AFAICT.

P.S. Checking old messages, it seems there was a lot of discussion over whether to migrate to or incorporate either OpenDOS or RxDOS kernel features. But I guess DOS-C was better / easier (and obviously better license than OpenDOS). I think Tom E. told us here not too long ago that C was chosen due to easier maintenance for the developers at the time. I think it was a good decision.
