Description

MSX-DOS 2 was provided with a few tools under the form of .COM files, but most of the MSX-DOS 2 tools have been created by the MSX scene. They provide additional commands and can generally also be used under Nextor.

Note also that a MSX-DOS 2 tool can sometimes offer an advanced programming environment, it's the case of MultiMente for example.

Commands

The below table includes only the MSX-DOS 2 Tools for which a detailed explanation of the commands provided by these tools is available in the corresponding Wiki pages. It will be updated each time a tool is deeply explained.

It includes MSX-DOS 1 Tools that are compatible with MSX-DOS 2, so you don't need to check two different Wiki pages if you use MSX-DOS 2.
