The purpose of STATWIN is to display a "percentage processed," or "status"
window, complete with visual indicator bar. I applaud Jim Schaffner for
implementing this idea using Clipper.

However, as is usually the case when I stumble across good code, I found some
elements aesthetically lacking. With apologies to Jim, I have hacked up the
code a bit to help satisfy my desire to produce a more beautiful and robust
utility.

There are many enhancements to the original, but I will spare you the details.
Just try it out. If you have used the original, the differences will be
readily apparent. The gist of the code is still Jim's, though.

I have also included a better TEST program, which shows all the features
available from STATWIN.

Compile both TEST.PRG and STATWIN.PRG, then link. Have fun! I hope you
enjoy this great little utility! If you have any other ideas to improve
the code (either functionally or aesthetically) I'd be glad to hear from you.
