Contents of the READ.ME file
Thank you for evaluating ProWindows(tm) LITE 4.1.
This is an UN-REGISTERED copy of ProWindows(tm) LITE 4.1 for
Microsoft(R) QuickBASIC(R) and/or BASIC PDS 7 Compilers.
Please read this entire document prior to using this product.
For a limited time, DSE has reduced the price of
ProWindows(tm) PROFESSIONAL to $49.95. This is the EXACT
same package that has been advertised nationally for a
much higher price. Run DEMO.COM for a complete
demonstration and use the special order form "ORDER-ME.FRM"
to order at the reduced price.
In order to make use of this product, you must first create a
Library (.LIB) and Quick Library (QLB). This distribution
file includes several batch (.BAT) files to facilitate the
quick creation of both.
If you have a mouse, use MOUSE.BAT. If you don't have a
mouse, OR you don't want to include mouse support in your
program(s), use NOMOUSE.BAT. It strips out all mouse code and
creates smaller files.
If all you want is a generic windowing library, run
SMALL.BAT. This program strips out all MOUSE and "Event-
Loop" functions and creates even smaller files. NOTE:
LDEMO3.BAS will NOT run with this model.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR MORE??? BROCHURE.BAT will create a library
that can run the included BROCHURE.BAS program. This program
demonstrates our ProWindows(tm) PROFESSIONAL package.
PRINTING THE DOCUMENTATION
All ProWindows(tm) documentation files are stored in plain
ASCII format and can be printed directly to a dot matrix or
laser printer. The only imbedded formatting codes are
standard formfeeds (ASCII 12) at the end of each page.
This distribution file includes a full set of demonstration
programs that provide examples of how to use most of the
window functions, and what you can get if you register for
ProWindows(tm) PROFESSIONAL. Also provided is a empty
skeleton program that provides the beginning framework to
develop a ProWindows(tm) application.
