Requirements: IBM or Compatible with color graphics and 1 floppy

By the time you put this Grasp Demo together you should have
a good understanding of the basics of Grasp. Just follow the
steps one by one carefully and construct it into a working demo.

This tutorial contains the pictures, clippings, font, and
instructions necessary to produce a Grasp Demo. It does not
contain the actual Grasp Program. You may download Grasp and
the Manual from The Winning Combination.

The first thing you need to do is check and make sure you have
all the files needed. Here is the list:
1. GRASP.EXE ( 1,2,and 3 are found
2. GLIB.COM on grasp program disk)
3. GRASPRT.EXE
4. FRAME.PIC
5. OLDTIME.SET
6. B1.CLP thru B16.CLP

Let's begin by copying all of the above files to a blank
formated disk. Label this disk GRASP WORK DISK

Now insert your Grasp work disk into drive a:

From the A: prompt type GRASP you should see the main menu in
a few moments. Use your curser key to move down to LOAD A FILE
and press Return. It should be waiting for you to type a name
or accept the default file name (tmpfile). We are going to call
it BEAR so type BEAR and press return. Now press enter once more
and you will be in the Grasp editor.




















We can now start writing our DEMO..just type everything below
