MBA: moving the files themselves, as Kasey said, is simple..
just copy everything and move it.. that gets more involved if
you move it to a different "path" and the app was hard-coded
with full and/or specific paths.. or a single user to a network..
Most important, PdoxDOS 3.5 must be run in "real mode" on any
Windows or Win95 machine..

Coincidentally, I just finished doing exactly that (moved Paradox4 + 60 mb app
from 486/50 to P133). I couldn't imagine using floppies for the job. For one
thing I have several "history" tables which are nearing 6 mb each (they could
be broken up into floppy-sized chunks, then reassembled, but --
With LapLink, you just connect the two machines via serial or parallel port,
boot up and run the LL program, select the source directories using a
split-screen, and hit "copy." It will copy files and subdirectories, create
target dirs for you, verify on the fly etc. Simple to use, fast, reliable. I
think I paid about $30 (includes cables) for it some years ago.

I am working on some legacy code to resolve Y2K problems. The code is
written in Turbo Pascal for DOS and uses the PXEngine 3.5. I have no
docs on the engine and have a few questions, maybe someone can help.
a) What is the layout of the TDATE record?
b) Exactly what does the PXDateEncode function do? A synopsis of the
function description from the manual would be appreciated.
