echo A QuickBasic 4.0(+) programmer's utility for
echo creating/displaying high resolution screen fonts
echo Copyright 1989 EWING SYSTEMS - All Rights Reserved
echo
echo JANSFONT consists of a QuickBasic 4.0(+) library which may be used as is or
echo linked into another QuickBasic 4.0(+) library. Its routines allow the user
echo to access any number of elaborate text fonts for use in QB4 HIGH-RESOLUTION
echo graphics. JANSFONT may be used on screens 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 and 10 (monochrome
echo graphics) as well as with all the appropriate VGA screens.
echo
echo The JANSFONT files and fonts in this BBS package are copyrighted programs
echo being offered as shareware. They may be used in your QuickBasic program
echo without including a EWING SYSTEMS copyright notice (although a mention
echo would be appreciated).
echo
echo JANSFONT.EXE is a self de-archiving archive which may be unpacked by typing
echo "JANSFONT" at the appropriate DOS prompt. The JANSFONT.EXE archive may be
echo freely distributed, uploaded to any BBS, traded, given away, etc. Just make
echo sure all the files are there--the demo needs the ".OVL" file to run.

echo The enclosed demo displays in EGA or CGA, depending upon what's installed.
echo First, it tries to install SCREEN 9. If that's not available, it tries to
echo install SCREEN 8. If THAT isn't available, it tries to install SCREEN 10
echo (monochrome EGA). If it can't find that, it tries SCREEN 2 (monochrome
echo CGA). If none of those are available, you're out of luck.
echo
echo Presently, there are 96 fonts available, as well as an application program
echo called JANSEDIT which allows the user to create his own fonts or mosaic
echo graphics tiles on a 16 X 16 pixel grid.
echo
echo TO ACCESS THE DEMO: After unloading the archive, type JANSDEMO at the DOS
echo prompt. Note that JANSDEMO displays nine JANSFONT fonts in a variety of
echo QuickBasic screen resolutions. It also contains ordering information and
echo descriptions of various JANSFONT utilites.
echo
echo The archive also contains a file called JANSFONT.MAN which may be printed
echo or displayed from the DOS command line. This is a complete overview of
echo the JANSFONT BBS package as well as instructions as to how to use the QB4
echo JANSFONT calls and fonts which have been included in the package.
