Input Graphical User
Interface DOS Overlay
Developing a GUI for Systems that Never Deserved
News: Dec 3rd, 2003
After not updating for two years, I'm here to tell you... expect another
'bout of "not updating for two years". As you may have noticed, I
frankly don't have time to work on InputGUIDO anymore - and while it will
be the basis of the DOS set-top box I'm making (for myself, I'm not trying
to make a commercial product here), I literally haven't touched the code
since the test build of NUnZIO crashed. Is InputGUIDO dead?
Sort of. Consider this a "coma". It could wake up at any minute
-- or never again.

So, I was halfway done with NUnZIO (Natural Uniform Zippy
Information Organizer), the core of the "File Manager" for InputGUIDO,
when I did a test build on the 8088 test machine (nicknamed HotRod)...
and it crashed the whole damned thing. Which means before I can add
an operational build... I need to look at the sorting routines I'm using
and rewrite them... possibly from scratch. Which sucks. I had
been using Molnar/Kukalba's
file opener routines, which are in part based off of code by Mark K. Kim...
so I need to compare his original code with theirs to see who f***ed up
the sorting routine... geh.
Additions in v3.2a:
Rudimentary Folder Support Added.
Bug after using mouse enabled programs fixed
Future Additions [AKA What Could Have Been]
(What am I working on now?):
I hate the way QuickBASIC handles arrays, so I'm writing
my own functions
I'm working on a file manager currently titled "Nunzio"
Note: I ask you to excuse the bare-bones look of this
part of the site. Frankly, I'm focusing more time on the actual program
then the site for it.
InputGUIDO is currently an alpha build, so not all features
have been implemented or completed. Please remember that before
installing the current version.
