A couple of DOS programs that I continue to use are:

TED (the Tiny Editor, a truly minimalistic text editor. With 3 k in size,
it is almost invisible, but it is great to do something quickly on the fly)

TSE (The Semwrite Editor -- the opposite end of the wordprocessing
spectrum. A lightning-fast, extremely powerful text crunching software that
does not blink where XYwrite gives up. For example, it runs a
search-replace operation in documents of up to 64 MB size at XY speed (i.e.
immediately)). I use it where XYwrite is too weak.

DR (Directory, a great replacement for the DIR command. Very useful for
quick and efficient disk housekeeping)

TEXTCON (TextConverter, a semi-intelligent converter that analyses "hard"
text with line returns into flowing text, with surprisingly few errors in
its analysis)
