WHAT IS GL-VIEW ?
----------------

GL-VIEW is a simple shell for manipulating ".GL". It will read the
first 999 ".GL" in the selected path. In order to use it and to avoid
"Out Memory", I suggest that you make as much memory as possible and to
start from the command line or from WINDOWS 3.x.

FILES INCLUDED IN THIS ARCHIVE:

GV.EXE = The GL-VIEW program.
GV.DOC = GL-VIEW documentation.
GV.HIS = Revision History.
GV.PIF = PIF file for running SHEZ under Windows.
GV.ICO = Windows ICON for SHEZ.
FILE_ID.DIZ = Short description
WHATS.NEW = Whats new in this version

GV [/?] [FILE.GL] [/M*.*] [/PPATH] [/EPATH] [/GPATH] [/F] /[I] [/X]

/? : A resume of this documention
Exemple: C:\GL-VIEW>GV /?

FILE.GL : Execute the FILE.GL
Exemple: C:\GL-VIEW>GV D:\GL\MISC\EXEMPLE.GL

You must put ".GL".

/M*.* : The mask
Exemple: C:\GL-VIEW>GV /MA*.GL

If you included a MASK in GV.CFG, it will have the prioritie.

/PPATH : Where the ".GL" are
Exemple: C:\GL-VIEW>GV /PC:\GL

If you included a Path in GV.CFG, it will have the prioritie.

/EPATH : Where the editor is

If you included a Editor in GV.CFG, it will have the prioritie.

Exemple: C:\GL-VIEW>GV /I

COMMAND IN THE SHELL:
--------------------

ENTER : View the ".GL"

? OR / : A short resume of this documention

I : Information on the ".GL" Information File (".GLI")

Your editor or the internal viewer will show you the ".GLI"

If it doesn't have a ".GLI", a startup file will be created but
you must specify a editor in order to edit it.

M : Change the mask

Useful to select some of your ".GL"
Exemple:
Mask : M*.GL
Mask : TES*.GL

P : Change the path of your ".GL"

E : Change the path of the editor

Exemple:
Editor : C:\EDITOR\EDITOR.EXE

If you have DOS 5.0 and don't specified any editor, GL-VIEW will
get the DOS editor unless you put the /I in the command line to
force the internal viewer.

Exemple:
Editor : C:\DOS\EDIT.EXE

If you don't specify any editor the internal viewer will be
selected.

Exemple:
Editor : INTERNAL VIEWER


G : Change the path of the GRASPRT.EXE

Exemple:
Grasptr: C:\GL

T : Tag file

After a Tag/Untag, the cursor will go to the next one.

CTRL-ENTER : View all tagged files

CTRL-T : Tag all files

CTRL-U : Untag all files
