Utility Diskette # 3 - Part I

To ensure that the latest diskette is given the attention it deserves the contents are outlined below. See on-disk documentation for version compatibility and author information. The diskette consists of a group of AREV files on the root directory in account global (DISKETTE_THREE_BP, DISKETTE_THREE_DOCS, DISKETTE_THREE_HELP, DISKETTE_THREE_MACROS, DISKETTE_THR EE_MENUS, DISKETTE_THREE_TEMPLATES). There are three subdirectories, DOS, GRAPHICS and PROBANK. DOS contains some DOS specific utilities, GRAPHICS contains a complete set of graphics related C programs and PROBANK contains a shareware graphing utility we are pleased to include for your trial. Additional documentation on the GRAPHICS and PROBANK subdirectories can be found in DISKETTE_THREE_DOCS. If any additional routines have documentation in this file, the routines are marked with a Note that in keeping with our policy, source code is provided for all AREV routines and most of the assembler routines. As there was so much code the diskette has been "PAKed" - see the on-diskette README files for details of how to extract the information.

                    moving records between DOS and AREV.

  BCS.FIND.TEXT      Fully featured text search facility - permits
                    definitions of files to search, case sensitivity et al.
                    Uses two templates.

    BCS.GRAPHIC      Used in conjunction with macro keys to facilitate the
                    addition of graphics (box characters) into a template.

                    "fast draw" mode. 386/486 users might like to put a
                    delay loop into the code for "fast draw".

         CHOOSE      A TCL "Select" processor. Allows the user to view a

                    Excellent demonstration of the use of VSPACE.

        PALETTE     Displays a colour palette and permits the user to read

          SCALC     Programmable scientific calculator with just about
                    everything you could want from a calculator including
                    the ability to write your own routines to hook into the
                    calculator. It even copes with imaginary numbers!

           SCAN     Displays scan codes for entered keystrokes in an
                    on-screen window.

       SKELETON     Updated version of routine to generate commuter code for
                    templates. Includes support for 2.1 features, better
                    support for commuter windows and support for lower case

        VOLTRNS      This program will change the Media name and/or the
                    Account for the file in a volume - and will modify the
                    index definitions for any indexed files in that volume,
                    thus indexes will not have to be rebuilt when redefining
                    a volume's Media or Account.

        WINDONE     Closes window after save if called with an explicit
                    record key.
