The Pasco Utilities

Here are some utility programs which may be of use. License is free to end users, but I retain the copyright. These programs are shared "as-is" without warranty, promise of support, or liability for consequences of their use. If you like them, feedback and/or donations are welcome.

Use of these utility programs presumes a certain level of technical computer literacy. If you do not have it, please don't ask me to teach you. For example, to install these programs, you will need to know how to unpack a .zip file and move an executable file into a directory on your PATH, or create a new directory for it (e.g. c:\bin) and alter your PATH environment variable to include this new directory. To use them, you will need to know how to open a command shell window, and to edit and use a batch file.
