About this program:
The NDos is a boot menu for floppies. Once installed, you may select between
various startup-sequences on that disk. The NDos and the boot menu take
absolutely no disk space at all, so a lot of room is left for your usage.
This makes the NDos the ideal solution for a game dos - store various games
on one disk and boot with the NDos to select one for playing.
The NDos comes with a converter that is used to write the boot code on disk
and to setup the individual startup-sequences.
NDos, Version 2.12: Fast forward to 2023. If you really still need this
program, there is a very minor fix, namely arguments that are part of the
$EDITOR environment variable are no longer read as part of the command name,
but as additional (immediate) arguments the editor takes. NDOS still does not
parse the $EDITOR variable fully correctly (in the sense of using the syntax
rules of the shell for quoting) but it should be good enough for many purposes.
Also, the "Clear Menu" item has been replaced by "Start with new menu", which
is probably more intuitive.
