Thank you for downloading the PCX file viewer for Foxpro 2.00 !!
This is Version 1.02 of the PCX File Viewer for Foxpro 2.00.
You may have seen three such viewers on compuserve that view
2,16, and 256 Color PCX files. This version combines the three functions of
the preveous veiwers in one package. This Viewer should display all
Color and monochrome PCX Files. This is a limited use version... The only
differnce between this version and the full version is that the full version
supports viewing PCX files directly from memo feilds and has a fast paint
option which paints the image almost instantly to the screen with a short
delay before as opposed to the gradual painting that occurs in this version..
If this version suits your needs please feel free to use it as you please
at no charge whatsoever. If you want the latest copy of the full version.
A small donation of $15.00 or more would be appreciated (for the effort!)
and your Name Address and Compuserve I.D. is all you need to get it.
If you do not subscribe to Compuserve send a self addressed stamped diskmailer
with a disk (3.5 or 5.25 ) and I will send it back to you with the viewer and
some sample PCX files and a conversion program to convert GIF files to PCX files.
