One difference between IBM PC-DOS and Microsoft MS-DOS is the availability of the utilities LINK.EXE and EXE2BIN.EXE. With IBM PC-DOS, starting with Version 3.30, these utilities are no longer included with the normal PC-DOS release, and are instead included with the supplemental disk that comes with the “IBM PC-DOS Technical Reference.” However, EXE2BIN.EXE and LINK.EXE are included on the general MS-DOS release.
The following two additional utilities are included on the IBM PC-DOS Technical Reference supplemental disk, but are not included in the Microsoft MS-DOS release:
- The LIB.EXE library utility. This tool comes with all of the Microsoft language products, but does not come with MS-DOS itself.
- VDISK.ASM, the source code for an older release of VDISK.SYS, the IBM virtual disk device driver. This source code does not reflect the latest revision of VDISK.SYS. Microsoft MS-DOS does not include source code to its equivalent driver, RAMDRIVE.SYS.
