WHAT IS TELEPORT?
Teleport is a ram resident full featured program that makes cutting and
pasting data between different programs a simple thing to do. In doing so
it has the capability of capturing and editing up to 4 different screens of
data at once and displaying them simultaneously. Teleport also has the
ability to save these captured screens as ascii files; in this way Teleport
can pop up reference screens at any time.
Teleport was developed initially just for the purpose of being able to view
more data at once. It is written entirely in 8086 assembly language. The
first version allowed the capturing of screens into 4 windows and had the
ability to display them at will. Finding this to be extremely useful it
was decided to work seriously with the program to make it a viable product.
We inproved the windowing methods, gave it the ability to save and retrieve
the capured screens, and most importantly the cut and paste feature was
added. We discussed methods of releasing the program publicly and decided to
give the User Supported Concept (Shareware) a try. Although we realize that
every user will not be able to help us out, we are relying on your good
faith to register the program if you can. Commercial users MUST register
Teleport. Teleport registration fee is $17 and with registration we will
send you a really cute OTTER tee-shirt. Additional shirts are available for
$8. Checks should be made payable to Ottersoft. We appreciate your
your suggestions and criticisims and look forward to developing many new
products in the future. If you can think of a neat program idea let us know!
IMPORTANT: The Otter featured in the tee-shirt is a European River Otter,
which we find is a friendlier Otter than many of its cousins.
