FXCOLOR - VGA COLOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM


System Requirements
-------------------
FXCOLOR requires a VGA system and Clipper 5.01. It is designed for TEXT
screen modes, not graphics screen modes.


Compiling & Linking The Demo Program
------------------------------------
To compile the demo program FXDEMO.PRG, just run the MAKEDEMO.BAT file
from your DOS command line. If you use a compiler other than the
default RTLINK included with Clipper 5.01, you may want to edit the
batch file or compile and link it yourself.


About The Demo Program
----------------------
The demo program is written in a tutorial fashion to demonstrate usage
of the commands. It is not necessary to hard-print the FXDEMO.PRG file
(and is probably a waste of paper to do so). All pertinent code used to
implement commands is shown on the screen as part of the demo.


So, What Do I Hard-Print?
-------------------------
You may want to print the documentation file, FXCOLOR.DOC, and the text
file VGA.DOC. These files may be printed from the DOS command line
with:
TYPE filename.doc > PRN

Sorry, there is no Norton Guides (NG) file (what do you want for free?).
Perhaps some enthusiastic person who has a NG compiler and plenty of
spare time might want to create one for everyone's use!


Linking FXCOLOR To Your Applications
------------------------------------
This part is real easy. Just add the file FXCOLOR.OBJ to the list of
object files you are linking, as in:

RTLINK FILE myprog, fxcolor


Product Support
---------------
What? I don't generally support products I'm giving away FREE. But if
you do have a problem, or question, or maybe even some praiseworthy
comments, just send me a message via CompuServe mail or leave a message
in NANFORUM to 73340,3425 and maybe you'll get an answer.


Enjoy!
