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.
