Must Be Art > Software > ITTSRCHK
ITTSRCHK is a simple DOS command-line program for use in the batch file you write to load TSR (terminate-and-stay-resident) drivers that work with InstantTrack. It simply checks to see if the standard set of drivers is already loaded, and returns a DOS exit code that can be used in the batch file to selectively install those drivers not already found. This makes it easy to write a batch file that can be called repeatedly without accidentally re-installing any of the drivers.
To run ITTSRCHK, any environment capable of running an MS-DOS program is required. This certainly includes all versions of MS-DOS beyond 2.0. This program will also work under all versions of Windows or OS/2, but the various drivers it's intended to work with might not.
A batch file using ITTSRCHK looks like this:
if errorlevel 3 goto it
if errorlevel 2 goto itune
if errorlevel 1 goto orbitdrv
Just finished first version. Minimally tested. Use at your own risk.
The current released version is 1.0, released December 10, 2003.
2003-12-09 I re-read the InstantTune user manual by Anthony Monteiro, AA2TX, and realized that a batch file that could be run twice safely would be better than a batch file that would screw things up.
ITTSRCHK maybe distributed and used freely under terms similar to the BSD license. See the source code for legalese.
Source code in C for Microsoft C 6.00 is included. Compile with:
cl /W4 ittsrchk.c
DRVSVC.TXT - programmer's specification for the KCT software interface
INTSPEC.TXT - programmer's specification for the interfaces used by OrbitDRV
KCT-passthru - programmer's specification for KCT TSR extensions (NOT followed by ITTSRCHCK 1.0)
