1. Description
-----------
This is a Microsoft mouse menu program for use with Borland's Turbo C
integrated environment. It has a utility menu, which can be customized
by the author (see below), and is operative both within the Turbo C
environment and within most other DOS environments. This utility menu
contains a "point and shoot" ASCII character menu which will type
highlighted ASCII characters upon pressing a mouse button. The utility
menu contains 10 customizable entries, which can be used for simulating
any keystrokes that can be typed by the Microsoft mouse. The author
will write the code for this customization upon registration and payment
of a fee for the programming service.

2. Quick Start
-----------
Place the files TCMOUS.MNU and MENU.COM in the same directory. Change to
this directory. Type MENU TCMOUS. The message "Menu installed" will
appear if the operation is successful. Within the Turbo C environment,
the left mouse button generally activates the Turbo C menus and acts as
an key. The right mouse button activates the WordStar, Utilities
and other command menus. Pressing both buttons at the same time is the
same as hitting the key.






TURBO C MOUSE 1.00 DOCUMENTATION Page 2


When the mouse menu is loaded into memory, and you are not working in
the Turbo C environment, the right mouse button activates a utilities
menu. See below for a description of this menu.

To remove the mouse menu from memory, change to the directory that
contains the file MENU.COM and enter the command MENU OFF.

3. Installation
------------
Copy the files TCMOUS.MNU and MENU.COM to the same directory.

4. Operation
---------
TCMOUS.MNU was written for the Microsoft mouse and a color monitor.
Performance of the program with other equipment is unknown at this time.
The mouse driver must be installed before TCMOUS.MNU will operate. This
is generally accomplished by adding a statement to your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file. It is recommended that this statement be MOUSE /S50. The switch
/S50 provides a sensitivity that is tolerable.

The mouse menu program should be loaded before Turbo C. The command to
load the mouse is MENU TCMOUS. If the mouse is successfully loaded,
the message "Menu installed" will appear. The mouse is initially
activated by pressing the left mouse button. If you have the evaluation
copy of the program, you will be presented with a series of intolerable
advertising screens that require you to press the left mouse button
until the word AGREED appears on the screen. The program is fully
active and complete after this is done. The evaluation copy of the
program is not a "shaved down" version.

If you have registered your copy of the program, press the left button to
activate the mouse. A screen will appear which tells you that the mouse
program is active. It also lists the registered owner and registration
number. Please cite this data in all correspondence about the program.

5. Registration
------------
The registration form can be printed from the file REGIS.FRM. Please
use the form for registration. The form is in ASCII format, and may be
imported into a word processor, completed, and then sent to the author.
This procedure is recommended, especially if you are designating custom
menu entries. It will help me avoid entering the wrong code.

The registration fee is $15 plus $2.50 shipping and handling. It should
be sent to the author at the above address. Registered users will
receive the latest version of the program, as well as the next program
update, when it becomes available. The registered version uses 7Kb
less memory than the distribution version, and does not require toler-
ation of the irritating advertising that I wrote to encourage registr-
ation.

For an additional fee of $10, at the time of registration, up to ten
custom menu entries can be specified. These will be written into your
copy of the program. Some examples are shown in the section on Custom
Menus in this document, and represent the extent of coding the author
expects to perform for this fee. If the coding you request signifi-
cantly exceeds the amount shown as examples in this document, the
charge for coding time will be $50 per hour. You may either make a





TURBO C MOUSE 1.00 DOCUMENTATION Page 3


reasonable estimate of the time required, and enclose payment with
your registration, or you may request an estimate for the service from
the author.

If you have registered a copy of the program, and later decide to have custom
menu entries written or changed, the fee for this service will be $15 plus
$2.50 shipping and handling. The terms and conditions of such services are
as mentioned above. Please use the registration form when requesting such
services, and enter your registration number on the form.

6. Utilities Menu
--------------
An utilities menu is activated by the right mouse button, and should
work in most environments. Exceptions will occur when the program
finds a match with one of the Turbo C checks that it makes, and you
will be presented instead with the Turbo C menu. This is not a dead
end. Simply select Utilities from this menu and you will have access
to the menu selections.

The utilities menu includes a "point and shoot" ASCII chart. All of
the ASCII characters are displayed on the screen. Highlight the ASCII
character that you wish to type and press a mouse key. If your current
environment accepts ASCII key entries, the character you have chosen
will be displayed on the screen.

The utilities menu also contains a "Custom Keys" selection. These 10
options do nothing in the distribution copy of the program. They can
be named and coded to your specifications at the time of registration.
For example, in my own copy of the program the Custom Key selection
presents the menu shown below, with the selections typing the code
listed below each menu item. The code 013 indicates that the
key is pressed.

7. Right Button Menus
------------------
The right mouse button generally activates the WordStar, Turbo_C hot
keys, the Alt-key menu and other features. These are described below
for the cases in which they either differ from the commands described
in the Turbo C User's Guide, or are unique to this mouse program.

Trace - This selection changes the assignments of the
mouse keys. The left mouse button is equivalent
to pressing the F7 key, and will continue tracing
through the program one line at a time. The
right mouse button will run the program to the
current cursor location. Pressing both mouse
buttons resets the mouse, and resets the program
trace (equivalent to pressing Ctrl-F2).
