How to Use These Files
BR.EXE is PC-BROWSE (tm) a shareware program from Quicksoft, famous for
PC-WRITE. Please see the information at the end of this file.
To load BR.EXE:
Place this line in your Autoexec.bat file or enter from prompt:
BR.EXE /c (for color monitors)
BR.EXE /e (to load high; takes only 4K of lower RAM)
BR.EXE /c /e (for both color and hi mem)
To use the PC City/County Finder files:
The PC City/County Finder files must be in the current directory
or you must indicate the directory path before specifing the
two-character PO designation after pressing F6 below,
Press the hot-key combination: Shift-Control-F1.
Press F6 and then type the two-character PO designation for
the state you are interested in, press ENTER. The desired
state file will load and the beginning of it will appear on
the upper portion of your screen.
Press F9, type in the city you are interested in (not necessary
if the curser is placed on the city name in your original file)
and press ENTER (to finish entering the state abbreviation).
Press ENTER or Grey+ key to begin the search. BROWSE will find
the first appearance of the name; press ENTER or GREY+ as many
times as needed to find the desired place.
ESC will clear PC-BROWSE off the screen. When next you invoke
it, it will come up with the same screen as when you
PC-BROWSE will find and display the CITY, COUNTY, LATITUDE and
LONGITUDE. The state files are simple text files. One caution: If
you are looking up a city that is also the name of a county,
Browse will find the first instance of the name (Los Angeles, for
example) so you'll have to wade through a number of "hits" on the
county name before you get the city. You can get the next
occurrence by pressing ENTER or the Grey-plus key. To get the
previous occurrence, press the Grey-minus key. (The Grey + and -
keys are on the numeric pad.)
