Welcome to a nifty utility. This is a fancy way to control pause prompts (in
batch files) or anything else. You can use it to display your own messages or
This program will display the popular slash sequence used in programs to show
working or waiting. You call it by:
WORKING! [your message]
[your message] can be any text up to any length that will display in caps after
the rotating slash. If you just type WORKING!, it'll just show the slash.
This will be the only free*but* ware version.
If you feel this program is useful to you, a donation would be appreciated.
Registration is *not* required, but any comments or money will be gratefully
accepted. That is what FREE*BUT* WARE is.
FREE*BUT* WARE New De facto Standard:
This program is free but:
you are not allowed to modify it
you may distribute it w/o modification
I'm not responsible if anything goes wrong. (the circular sequence causes
your screen to get headaches)
No warranties expressed or implied. Provided `AS IS'
donations will be accepted
comments will be accepted
I retain all rights, including Copyrights (541,951,143) to this program
Alternate or custom versions are available for a small cost
The source code is offered for a charge
Consult RKSLICEN.COM for additional licensing / distribution policies.
* This is better than to say it is neither freeware or shareware like most
people do. I've seen people who say their program is freeware but donations
are accepted, so tell them to call it `FREE*BUT* WARE'. Also use this concept
eliminate the need for stupid registration keys or numbers. People have
goofed. They've called it Shareware when they don't really share it. (maybe
they should call it Greedware ?)
Reiteration: I disclaim all warranties relating to this little program. Caveat
The cost for customization is $5. To order this service, send a 3.5 diskette
in a self-addressed stamped envelope along with a description of what you want.
It must be within the bounds of this program.
Some ideas you can order: a large rotation
two rotating slashes
an ansi animation (for example: something that
would repeat and repeat)
a moving truck left to right cycle
a default text display instead of command-line
* anything you wish
Source code: $10 (Not available in pascal or C)

P.O. Money orders preferred. No credit cards/cash. Bad checks subjected to an
additional $10 service fee.
