Calling MSSQL library from protected mode

I found this site, x86dos.gear.host with this incredible writeup on using a TSR to call a real mode ‘library’, which in turn calls another TSR.

It’s really interesting.  And probably a lot more useful 10+ years ago.

In addition there is a patched version of DOSBox, that includes support for named pipes.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!
