[aprssig] APRSdos soucre code?

Probably had txt file extensions to get past virus programs and such and you would just rename the files once downloaded?

Thank You,

Actualy, I found a second copy of the same five files on my hard drive, and *that* set also had compilation instructions indicating that the five files were all that there was to it.

------
RELEASE of APRSdos source code is for use by HAM radio operators personal use.  It is not allowed for commercial use without permission of the author, and holder of the registered APRS trademark, APRS Engineering LLC.
Bob Bruninga, WB4APR

HOW TO COMPILE APRSDOS:

1) Change all the files APRS5X.TXT to .BAS files
2) Copy the below into a COOMPILE5.BAT file
3) Copy the below into a LINK file
4) At the DOS prompt execute COMPILE5
5) The result will be APRSDOS.EXE
6) To run, it requires ALL of the directory structure
   including HSTS, LOGS, MAPS, MAPLISTS, README, etc

This is the COMPILE.BAT file:

BC APRSDOS\aprS5W.bas/E/X/O/T/C:2048
BC APRSDOS\aprS5V.bas/O/T/C:2048
BC APRSDOS\aprS5X.bas/O/T/C:2048
BC APRSDOS\aprS5Y.bas/O/T/C:2048
BC APRSDOS\aprS5Z.bas/O/T/C:2048
link /e @APRSDOS\lklst5.lnk


This is the LINK file (LKLST5.LNK):

aprS5W.obj+
aprS5V.obj+
aprS5X.obj+
aprS5Y.obj+
aprS5Z.obj
aprsdos.exe

QB.lib

--------

So perhaps those five files from the w1npp site and the contents of one of the binary zip files from the tapr site that Scott posted might be enough to regenerate the program if one could find a DOS system to build it on.
