MAKING APP95 SMALL & PORTABLE
I have discovered that the minimum files needed to use the HP Connectivity Pack's APP95 to move files back and forth between the 95LX and another PC are as follows:
I edited APNAMEUS.LST to maintain only the two EXM's listed here. App95 restores the SETUP.ENV file even if you erase it, so you could eliminate that one to reduce further the number of files you put on the disk. By carrying a disk with these files and a 95LX serial cable, you can connect to another PC to backup and transfer files when you're away from home.

If you want to access APP95's setup, you'll also need MSETUPM .EXM and MSETUPUS.RI. A program like ZIP is much smaller than solution above, but you need to have ZIP on the 95LX before you can use it. If ZIP gets corrupted or erased on the 95LX, you have to reinstall it.
FILER is in ROM and won't get corrupted. The APP95 on disk approach is even more important to me now that I have a Sundisk card. Sundisk requires a driver on the 95LX's C:\ drive. If the driver gets corrupted or erased, I keep a copy of it on my APP95 disk and reinstall it on my 95LX.
