Implementation on IBM PC under DOS


Hardware platform IBM PC and compatibles
Operating system DOS version 2.0 and upwards
Author Bob Eager
Implementation method LOWL-map
ML/I version AJB
Implementation version 2.0


This is a 16-bit implementation, and as such will suffer some limitations on available memory. However, ML/I was designed to run in much smaller memory areas, so there are unlikely to be many problems in practice.

This implementation should run on any version of MS-DOS or PC-DOS greater than or equal to 2.0, and any other DOS compatible with these. It should also run in the DOS emulation of any version of OS/2, and in a DOS or command window of any version of Windows greater than or equal to 3.0 (this includes 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP).

This implementation was built using the OS/2 implementation of ML/I, Microsoft MASM 5.10, and Microsoft LINK 5.10.

Available user documentation

Documentation format

Each document is available in Portable Document Format (PDF). This can be viewed on most systems using appropriate software such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is freely available from Clicking on the 'Get Adobe Reader' graphic at the end of this page will take you straight to the main Adobe Acrobat Reader page.

As an alternative, each document is also available in HTML, as a single file. This can of course be viewed with any browser, although the output is not as pleasing as the PDF version.
