So I coded a tiny little 512-byte program fitting into a bootsector, which displays a big clock. I even managed to squeeze switchable fore- and background colors and a key to toggle 12 vs 24 hour display in there. Now the sector is filled up to the limits, only 1 byte left. That’s 509 Bytes of Code & Data for a functioning clock program + 2 Bytes for the bootsector marker.
Real Small Programs Part 2: AsmSfv
The next „real small program“ is a SFV Verifying utility. It’s without doubt the smallest one flying around in the interwebz, and also one of the fastest, if not the fastest :) (ironically my quick tests showed it’s faster than both QuickSfv and RapidSfv hehe)
Real Small Programs: Service Tool
Finally coded something in assembly again!
A fully functional alternative to Windows Service Manager in only 11kB of uncompressed executable :)
