Arnold Metselaar has released an update of LIBDOS2, adding functions to make, read and remove directories. LIBDOS2 is a library that can be used with HiTech-C to produce programs that can use MSX-DOS2 specific features. An extra header file, source files and documentation are all included in the package. The new functions use only high-level bdos-calls and are FAT16 compatible. The updated LIBDOS2 package can be downloaded from MSX Banzai!.

Another update has been made.
The function opendir() can now also open root directories and the current directory (


) and its subdirectories, even when the current working directory is a root directory.
The command

dir d:.\*

does not work in MSX-DOS2 when the current directory of


is the root directory.

You can check whether you have this newer version by looking at the file changes, it should have an item
* Fully support "." as a shorthand for the current
directory, allow to open root directories.
