Can we add a reference, to confirm that this DRAWX program exists? I haven't found anything. Jsummers (talk) 13:48, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

I know it exists because I have the program on my computer. I know the author too and will have to ask him about it; maybe I can get the source code (the description I wrote is reverse-engineered by me, so if I can get source code, I can determine if I am missing anything). Here is some further information I have: It is a DOS program. The copyright date is 1991 (that is why I entered 1991 as the release date on this wiki). DOSBOX seems to be able to run the program just fine, except that Hercules mode doesn't work (even if DOSBOX is configured for Hercules mode). The program allegedly has a manual, although I do not have it (so it is also possible that the file formats are described there; I don't know). --Zzo38 (talk) 02:01, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. There's no real need to go to any more trouble researching it, that's up to you. Jsummers (talk) 12:52, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
The author has given me permission to distribute the program, so I now have. In addition, he told me that P, L, and X are the only commands in this format, so I have removed the notice that says it is unknown if there are other commands. --Zzo38 (talk) 03:17, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
