100 Ready-To-Run Programs and Subroutines for the IBM PC

The TAB book, 100 Ready-To-run Programs and Subroutines for the IBM PC by Jeff Bretz and John Craig only superficially resembles the one that has been available for years for 8-bit computers. Interestingly enough, this book has some artistically avant garde graphics programs, including a font design program. There are several utilities worth looking at: a cross referencer, a memory dump routine, and a communications program. This looks like a more interesting mixture of programs than the above book, and might well be worth the investment if you are looking for a collection of customizable and relatively cheap software.
