Has Microsoft released a Librarian for MS/DOS (PC/DOS) yet?  I could
really use one for some of the work I am doing.  Has anyone had any
experience with any Librarian for DOS?  Please respond by mail and
I will summarize to the net.

I am also still looking for information on Assemblers for the PC/XT.
Understand from a local Intel rep that they have a product (ASM-86)
but he was (get this) not allowed to give me the price or technical
details on it.  Turns out he is a sales trainee and they cannot give
any info out so he has to get a regular salesman to call me.

Yes, Microsoft does have an MS-DOS object librarian...Oddly
enough, the only way you can get it (that I know of) is to
buy it as part of the Microsoft C compiler package.  The librarian works
as you expect....todd

There is a company that runs ads in the PC Tech Journal called Polytron.
They apparently sell something called the "Polylibrarian", which is the
product that Microsoft should have released but didn't (i.e. an object
module library generator/maintenance program).

Their address is
		DS 3-310
		P.O. Box 787
		Hillsboro, OR
		97123

I have never used their product, have never seen a review, and have no idea
whatsoever if it works as advertised.  If it does, however, it would be what
you're after.

Not only does ZDOS come with the librarian, it also comes
with an assembler. If you don't already have it, this might
be a inexpensive (??? at $150 you say ???) to get both.

I understand that ZDOS (the version of MS-DOS for the Zenith Z100)
includes a librarian that will work on the IBM PC.  ZDOS sells for
around $150, I think.

Microsoft DOES have an object module librarian.  Unfortunately, the only
way to get it is to purchase their $500 Microsoft C Compiler (aka Lattice C).
It might be possible to purchase it separately though.  You might want to
contact Microsoft (ha! if you can get someone over there on the phone!) and
check on that possibility.
