DS#63 - DOS XE

Here is a copy of the elusive DOS XE as reviewed in issue 49, useful particularly for owners of the XF551 disk drive but which can also be used with the 1050 or other drives. One of the most useful aspects of this DOS is the ability to set up sub-directories and so organise your disks much more conveniently. You may also set the date whenever the disk is booted so that your saved files will all be dated. There are batch command facilities and a much enhanced machine language access menu that allows, among other things, appending memory to binary files and altering the contents of RAM. Unfortunately there is no manual on the disk as the officially released manual for DOS XE was a small book which does not seem to be available any longer, but the various options of the menus are quite easy to pick up.
