I suggest you first print out MergeIt.Doc. Before doing the tutorial,
you'll need to print out Tutor.Txt. (It would also be helpful to at least look
at the PCX image sections EschrB1.PCX and EschrB2.PCX in an image viewing
or painting program). In the tutorial, you will merge these hand scanned image
sections together. The line drawings in Frame.Doc will not directly print
correctly, read this file on your monitor first.
To get started, copy all these files to one directory, excluding the 3 graphic
help files and graphic driver not appropriate to your video system (i.e. if
you have hercules, don't copy the help files with extension ".EGA" or the
driver file "EgaVga.BGI", otherwise don't copy help files with extension
".HRC" or driver "Herc.BGI").
