Download v13n07.zip. One site is:


Unzip the PERUSE.ZIP folder. Unzip the command PERUSE to a common directory, like C:

At C:, type PERUSE /x 2152. This will initialize PERUSE. Type PERUSE /? for help.

To use peruse, hit the SCROLL LOCK key. This will let you use the up, down arrows, and page up, page down.

Scrolling in MS-DOS windows IS possible, despite other posts I've seen saying inaccurately that scrolling in DOS is "impossible".
