Dos Object


platform: DOS, Win16


The methods in this section are specific to the DOS or WIN16 versions of ScriptEase. Most of these routines allow a programmer to have more power than is generally acknowledged as safe under the scripting guidelines of general ScriptEase. Be cautious when you use these commands. They allow much latitude in what may be done at a very low programming level with little or no built-in protections.


The methods in this section are preceded with the Object name Dos, since individual instances of the Dos Object are not created. In other words, the Dos object has only static methods. For example, Dos.inport(portid) is the syntax to use to read a byte from a hardware port. Remember to prepend "Dos." to the method names as shown in this section.
