    If anyone wants to run vDosPlus on a Mac, here is vDosPlusMac, a copy of the latest vDosPlus, packaged inside a "Wineskin" wrapper that makes it possible to run Windows programs under OSX/macOS: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3s0odm4v2nt9r28/vDosPlusMac.zip?dl=1 It is based on a similar package that I made for the original vDos. To run it, you will need to Ctrl-click on it, and choose Open from the popup menu. If you simply double-click on it, macOS will probably tell you that the file is corrupt; it...
