Read COMMENTS.DOC carefully before you use COMMENTS. If you print
COMMENTS.DOC with the DOS TYPE > PRN command, set your printer so it can
print the extended ASCII characters (graphics mode).
PRINTDOC.BAS is a simple listing that will print COMMENTS.DOC in 12 cpi
with a left margin of 1 1/2 inch. The codes sent to the printer should
work with any Epson compatible printer. If your printer requires
different codes, change them before running the program.
BOXES is a toolbox that was written to draw different kinds of boxes on
screen in a QuickBASIC listing. It is not copyrighted and you can keep it
and use it in your listings. Simply copy the subprogram(s) you wish to
use in your listing or load it as a module. This toolbox is included in
this package to show you what COMMENTS does to a QuickBASIC listing.
BOXES.BAK is the original listing as it was written in the first place.
BOXES.BAS is the version COMMENTS wrote when it was used on the original
listing and BOXES.STR is the structure file that COMMENTS created from
the listing when it analyzed it.
You will find all the information you need in COMMENTS.DOC. Please pay
special attention to sections 4 and 9, they tell you how your listings
should be written so COMMENTS will work properly.
COMMENTS is distributed through the Shareware concept. If you use
COMMENTS please send your registration fee to the address mentionned in
COMMENTS.DOC. When registering, you will receive a printed manual in the
6 1/4" x 9" format, the latest registered version of the program and the
source code of a few toolboxes you may use in your listings.
