2. Insert the ALITE diskette in Drive A or B.

3. Type A: (or B:, depending on step 2, above) and press ENTER

4. Type INSTALL, press ENTER and follow the on-screen instructions.

The information provided below is to help you start the program for
your hardware configuration. For more details about the operation
of the program press the F1 (function) key once you have started
the program. (Make sure you have installed the program using
INSTALL, as explained above).

* NOTE: ALITE uses a program overlay technique to free up more RAM *
* for data. As such, if the program is run from a floppy disk, *
* that disk should not be removed from the drive until you *
* have exited ALITE. *

ALITE is started from DOS using the command:

ALITE /Option1/Option2/Option3/..... [ENTER]

Available Command Line Options
/ATT - Enables ATT display graphics
/H - Enables graphics for Hercules
/E - Enables graphics for EGA
/NT - No Keyboard Turbo (Eliminates conflicts with some programs
that directly manipulate the keyboard registers)
/Q - Quick screen updating for CGA
/R - Load the program as TSR using in preference EMS/Disk
/RX - Load the program TSR using XMS for swapping
/RD - Load the Program TSR using a disk for swapping
/SW=X - Use drive X for the temporary swapping file (Default is drive C)
/U - Unload program from memory
/V1 - Force CGA mode on VGA monitor

For additional command line options, please take a look at the file
ALITE.MAN, or the printed user's manual (if you have a registered copy)

ALITE may be set-up to run from any directory (usually on a hard disk
system). The way to do that is to:

a. Include the ALITE directory in your DOS path, and
b. Set the environment variable ALITE as follows:
At the DOS prompt type

SET ALITE=Drive:\Directory

For example, if ALITE is installed on your drive D and
in a directory called ALITE then the SET command would be:


For details on using the program, please make sure you print out
the on-disk user's manual, ALITE.MAN (approx. 65 pages). This file
is extracted for you during the installation process and is formatted
and ready to print on any printer using 60 or more lines per page.

To print the manual file to your printer, simply use the command:


Modifications in ALITE /R Ver 1.20r
The new version of ALITE /R (codenamed /R for /resident) may
now be executed in a Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR), or
background mode.

Using one of the /R command line switches (see Starting
the program above), the program will load using only about 7K of
conventional memory. Then, whenever you need it, the program
will pop over whatever application you are running, and allow you
to perform spreadsheet calculations without interrupting your
main application.

Summary of new commands:
ALITE /R - Load the program TSR using EMS [or DISK]

ALITE /RX - Load the program TSR using XMS swapping

ALITE /RD - Load the program TSR using DISK swapping
The command line switch /SW=X may also be
used to specify which drive to be used for
swapping, e.g. ALITE /RD /SW=E will use
drive E for swapping.

If no drive is specified, then drive C is
used. Note that the swap files are temporary
files created in the root directory of the
specified disk, and they are automatically
deleted by the progra, when it is unloaded.
DO NOT attempt to delete these files manually.

ALITE /U - Unload program (if loaded with /R, /RX, or /RD)

Hotkeys (Key combinations) to activate the program once loaded TSR:
Alt LeftShift /
Alt \
Alt ~ (the same as Alt ` )
