Links to fine DOS software

Over the years we have collected a lot of links to fine DOS software we use regularly and so would like to share with you. This page is intended for advanced users and software developers. So if you are looking for end-user applications like word processors, image manipulation software, sound players, etc., we recommend visiting external link Interesting DOS programs by Dev Anand Teelucksingh and Short.Stop's Edition of Free Software for DOS by Steve Adelewitz (R.I.P.) based on the original pages by Richard L. Green. Richard continues this work on external link

Many more interesting development tools, e.g., assemblers, compilers, debuggers, interpreters or linkers for various programming languages can be found at external link Dmitry Smaghin's site.

Note: List items marked with a floppy icon (floppy) link to a file directly (= "deep link").
