* SYSLINUX -> SyslinuxH. Peter Anvin2008-10-1411-92/+96
| | | | | | | | Adopt the moniker "The Syslinux Project", ordinary proper noun capitalization, to refer to the project as a whole. This leaves the all-caps SYSLINUX to refer to the FAT loader only. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
* MEMDISK: default to "safeint" modesyslinux-3.73-pre3H. Peter Anvin2008-10-141-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | There is enough evidence that "safeint" is a decent compromise between The Right Thing[TM] and dealing with the reality of ultra-broken DOSen. Make it the default. Clean up some of the command-line parsing code and status printing. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

| * Rename text documentation from *.doc to *.txtH. Peter Anvin2008-02-288-0/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | Rename plaintext documentation from doc/*.doc to doc/*.txt, to avoid the chronic problem of web sites thinking they're in MS-Word format. Sigh. As if Microsoft somehow had a monopoly on the word "document".

| | | | | | | | | | Handle unspecified file length for comboot/com32 modules; do changes to the appropriate part of libcom32 to handle this properly.

| | | | | | | | | | Allow MENU EXIT to "exit" to an arbitrary menu. This is really just a variant of "MENU GOTO", but it allows displaying an exit marker.
