Some software that I wrote years ago during the good old DOS times. It's all freeware ("free" as in beer) and some of it is open source/free software ("free" as in speech) under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
A fantastic program to simulate the movement of particles under the influence
of Lennard Jones, gravity, Coulomb and quadratic potential. The program
was designed to be fun to use without making compromises in the physical

.ASM sources, .OBJ file and C++ test program to demonstrate how to write
a keyboard interrupt handler that provides a simple keymap.
The code features bullet-proof deinstallation (even in cases when atexit() functions are not called). The BIOS based functions like getch() can be used together with the keymap if desired. The handler is not affected by compiler optimizations.
