Thank You!

Thank you for purchasing Secrets of the Borland C++ Masters
from Sams Books.

About The Diskettes

DISK 1 contains the source code examples from Secrets of the
Borland C++ Masters, plus the MR_ED text editor, 4PRINT
utility, and the ARTOOL drawing program. You may copy any of
the programs to your harddisk using the DOS COPY command or
XCOPY utility program. Most programs are stored in a
compressed form. Some programs, such as MR_ED will
decompress themselves automatically. Most of the programs,
though, require the use of the LHA decompression utility,
described below. DISK 2 contains additional programs and
utilities. These programs likewise require the use of the LHA
decompression utility.

The \SOURCE Source Code Subdirectory

The source code is organized into separate subdirectories, by
chapter, within the \SOURCE subdirectory. Hence, the source
code for chapter 5 is located in \SOURCE\CHAP05. Please note
that not all chapters in the book have source code so not all
chapters are represented in the \SOURCE subdirectory.

You may copy the contents of either disk to your harddisk
by using the DOS XCOPY command. Assuming that you have
inserted the diskette in drive A, you may type:

XCOPY A:\*.* x:\subdirectory /s

where x: is the hard disk drive letter, and \subdirectory
is the directory where you wish to have the filed

A variety of subdirectories were used during the creation of
this book. Hence, if you wish to use any of the include .prj
project files, you will need to edit the project lists to
locate the proper files.

When compiling the graphics program examples, you must create
a project file and include the Borland supplied graphics.lib

Decompressing the Files

The source files are stored in a compressed file format.
Use the LHA.EXE utility program, provided on the diskette
and copied to your destination directory, to decompress the
files. I recommend that you copy LHA.EXE to a subdirectory
that is already in your DOS PATH statement so that you can
quickly access LHA just by typing the LHA program name.

To decompress the files, switch to the subdirectory you
wish to use and type:


where LHA is the name of the archive utility, E is a command
line option to extract files from the archive, and
ARCHIVE.LZH represents the name of the archive file
containing the source code.

For example, to decompress the files in chapter 5, switch to
the source\chap05 directory, and run the LHA program as:


About LHA

LHA Version 2.12 is a data compression utility program,
Copyright (c) Haruyasu Yoshizaki, 1988-1991. While the
program is copyrighted, it has been graciously contributed
to the public domain for use by all computer users. The
program may be freely distributed subject to the restrictions
provided in the file LHA213.DOC. To access all the LHA
files, run the self-decompressing LHA213.EXE program.

LHA compresses files into the .LZH archive file format. By
choosing appropriate command lines switches, you can
compress, decompress and manage all of the files in the
archive. For information on using the utility, see
LHA213.DOC. For a brief description of command line
switches, type:
LHA -?

The sample programs are not guaranteed

The sample programs are provided solely to illustrate
programming concepts described in the text. These sample
programs are not intended nor warranted in any way for use
in production programs or applications. In particular, all
the programs have been reviewed by several professional
software engineers, however these programs have not be
subjected to the rigorous testing of a professional
software quality assurance organization. While you are
welcome to use the routines in your own applications, you
have the sole responsibility to determine if the routines are
appropriate for your application and that they perform to
your satisfaction.
