Emacs and MS-DOS
This section briefly describes the peculiarities of using Emacs under
the MS-DOS "operating system" (also known as "MS-DOG"). If you build
Emacs for MS-DOS, the binary will also run on Windows 3.X, Windows NT,
Windows 9X, or OS/2 as a DOS application; the information in this
chapter applies for all of those systems, if you use an Emacs that was
built for MS-DOS.
Note that it is possible to build Emacs specifically for Windows NT
or Windows 9X. If you do that, most of this chapter does not apply;
instead, you get behavior much closer to what is documented in the rest
of the manual, including support for long file names, multiple frames,
scroll bars, mouse menus, and subprocesses. However, the section on
text files and binary files does still apply. There are also two
sections at the end of this chapter which apply specifically for Windows
NT and 9X.
* Input MS-DOS Input. Keyboard and mouse usage on MS-DOS.
* Display MS-DOS Display. Fonts, frames and display size on MS-DOS.
* Files MS-DOS File Names. File name conventions on MS-DOS.
* Text and Binary Text files on MS-DOS use CRLF to separate lines.
* Printing MS-DOS Printing. How to specify the printer on MS-DOS.
* I18N MS-DOS and MULE. Support for internationalization on MS-DOS.
* Processes MS-DOS Processes. Running subprocesses on MS-DOS.
* Windows Processes Running subprocesses on Windows.
* Windows System Menu Controlling what the ALT key does.
