This is a helpful utility for those who hate the colors in QB 4.0

This will not work on QB 4.5 so DON'T try it. The QBSET program
writes directly to the QB.EXE program and the versions have different
sizes.

Probably doesn't matter since you always make a copy of your program
before testing others on it...right?

Anyway, the program is pretty self-explanatory. You will be shown a
screen (80x43) and it will contain all the color setup options that
I know of. They are labeled as to what they are and the foreground
and background colors are shown. Just change the colors to something
you think you would like and run QB.EXE. QB.EXE MUST be in the same
directory as QBSET.EXE along with the QB.INI file.

BLINKON and BLINKOFF are needed if you plan to use any high intensity
background colors in your setup. If you don't run BLINKOFF and you
set high-intensity background colors you WILL go insane.

All of the source code is included. It may be unreadable to some who
are not familiar with the various library packages I use constantly.
