Live file system
The underlying file system used by the dbDOS™ VM is brand new and adds significant functionality and increases the speed of the VM by as much as 38% over the prior engines.
Print on Modern hardware
dbDOS PRO 5+N comes with multiple ways of printing. In addition to printing on modern hardware, we have also included a set of retro printer drivers.
Print to PDF
When outputting to a modern device like a printer, there is an option for the output to be to a PDF file. This option allows for printing only to PDF or printing to PDF and the selected Printer at the same time.
Copy from Windows to dbDOS™
You can copy text from a Windows application using the CTRL-C and paste that text into the dbDOS™ system by pressing Ctrl-F9 or clicking the dbDOS™ PRO 5+N VM System menu as shown above and selecting the paste option from the menu.
Copy from dbDOS™ to Windows
dbDOS™ PRO 5+N adds a new capability to copy from the dbDOS™ PRO 5+N environment to the Windows environment. The system accomplishes this task by capturing any output to the printer in a windows buffer and allowing users to copy from the popup window into the Windows OS.
