IBRARY 2.0, 02/28/94:
This release adds scores of new routines, a new demo, and a
printed manual for registered owners. It features a complete
set of DOS directory and file handling services, control over
the cursor size and visibility, keyboard toggles, text screen
save/restore, convenient memory access, delays, new equipment
detection routines, and other goodies. More than 200 routines
All IBRARY routines which access the disk include built-in
critical error handling, so's to avoid having that nasty
"A>bort, R>etry, I>gnore, F>ail" prompt interrupt your
programs. Instead, critical errors cause an appropriate error
code to be returned, so you can process them normally.
