Its been a while since I've worked on DOS and I seem to have forgotten most of it.
I have a DOS 3.22 laptop on which I wish to display messages that I send to it over serial (COM1) and also save it to disk.
will dispaly the traffic on my screen but I also want it to save to disk.
And if at all possible I also want the laptop to beep at me when it has received a new message
How can I do this?
