Turbo Pascal Reference Guide from Borland International extract:
Program that you write and compile using Turbo Pascal langage
compiler may be used,given away, or sold without additional
license or fees, as long as all copies of such program bear a
copyright notice. Included in the Turbo Pascal diskettes are
several support files that contain encoded hardware and font
information used by the standard graphics unit (GRAPH.TPU).
These files which can be listed by dir *.bgi are property of
Borland International. You may use these files with the programs
you create with Turbo Pascal for your own personal use. In
addition, to the extent the programs you write and compile using
the Turbo Pascal language compiler make use if these support
files, you may distribute these support files in combination
with such programs, provided that you do not use, give away, or
sell the support files separately, and all copies of your
program bear a copyright notice.

QuickBBS Magic Editor
Hi to you. I'm not very good in writing documentations and I
know that there is not many people who are going to read it so
it's going to be very short. For that reason, the program has
been made the simpliest possible so you can use it without
reading this documentation.
Every one of you know that there is a lot of User Editors
for QuickBBS but the problem with them is that you can not find
a program that permit you to edit every parameters in the
users.bbs files so, to correct that, I decide to made me one. I
have shown it to some guys and they encourage me to put this
program out for every sysop so here it is. I hope you will enjoy
What is QME?
Qme is composed of two principal programe. First you have
a Users Editor that permit you to change all the parameters
found in the USERS.BBS file format found in the STRUCT.261 file
that comes with the QuickBBS program. The second part is a
little bit more specific. It's a Nodelist Editor. A Nodelist,
for the one who don't now what it is, is a list of BBS all
together in a network (like Fidonet). So, just for the fun of
doing it, I included this little program within my QME.
I tried to make QME the most simple possible so every one
can use it without having to read a 50 pages doeumentation.
There is not a 100 pages help screens but, the way it is done,
every command are accessible on the main screen of the part of
the program you are using.
A little detail : to save records (Users ou Node) the
command is : [END]
If you want to ask me some questions, or have good ideas
to add to this program or if you want to report any bugs, you
can contact me by Fidonet at 1:167/102.
I try to beta test this program to the end so there is no
bugs left but we are only three(3) to do this job so if you
never find a bug, please report it to me the fastest you can. I
can be reach through Fidonet at 1:167/102 or by post at
