Purpose: Provides BASIC programmers with an "event driven"
windowing user interface toolbox.

Features: LITE features mouse/software controlled overlapping
"virtual" windows. Virtual windows can be larger than
the physical display. Windows can be moved, hidden, re-
sized, and scrolled under mouse or software control.
The "window manager" uses "video recycling" (a technique
of using excess video RAM scratch memory) to increase
program speed and reduce memory requirements by up to
24K. Being "Event driven", once a display has been
created, the whole thing can be managed with a single
function call. Setup user defined "hot keys" that
bypass BASIC's clumsy internal events. The "event
manager" informs the user when a window was modified
(moved, hidden, etc) or when a hot key or standard key
was pressed. ShareWare price is $25.00.
