CHEF is a complete recipe database management system. Chef comes
complete with 26 recipes files containing several hundreds of recipes.
With Chef you can search through all of these recipes in several different
ways. The keyword retrieval algorithm allows selection of recipes by
assigned keywords, ingredients, and title words. In addition, once you
found a subset of the recipes with the specified keyword, you can prune the
list down by specifying a further selection criteria. So you could find
all recipes with CAKE as a title word and BERRY as an ingredient.
In addition to using these disks as a reference cookbook, you can add
your own recipes. Merely use your own editor to append the recipe you want
to the end of one of the recipes data files. Check the format of the last
recipe in the file to see where to put the title, ingredients, and keyword
Because there are too many recipes to fit on one disk, Chef is being
distributed on two. Chef runs best, and fastest, from a hard disk drive,
if one is available; copy the Chef files from the INFO-1a diskette into a
single subdirectory of the hard disk, then rename the recipes files on the
INFO-1b diskette from RECIPES.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 to RECIPES.19,20,21,22,23
24,25,26 and copy them to the hard disk. One of the problems which Chef
does have is how it utilizes multiple floppy disks. The best way to avoid
the problem when not using a hard disk is to run Chef only from the disk
which contains the recipes you would like to refer to. To this end, the
Chef program is included on both distribution diskettes.


MicroCom Systems distributes Public Domain and User-Supported (PD&US) software
for the IBM PC/XT/AT and compatible computers. Our software charter specifies
that we search for the best available PD&US software and distribute it for a
nominal charge. We understand that there are literally hundreds of megabytes
of PD&US software in existence and it is our goal to distribute only the best,
which constitutes only a small fraction of all PD&US software. Our prices are
also a reflection of the fact that we are a service oriented group.

In addition to offering only the best of what is available, we DO NOT offer
lots of redundant programs, which other public domain software groups tend to
do. We try to provide the service of distributing only the best program
available for a particular need, rather than every program on the market that
meets that need. For example, we sell only ONE variable size ram-disk (the
best one) whereas some of the other groups sell more than TEN of them!

The programs we distribute generally require PC-DOS versions 2.0 or later
(including 2.1, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2) A few programs may not work on some
compatibles. The basic programs distributed require IBM BASIC or BASICA, but
in most cases are compatible with GWBASIC, and Compaq's BASICA.


This distribution diskette may or may not have been physically write protected.
In any case, files should be copied to a work disk before use. In some cases,
it may not be possible to successfully execute programs without first copying
the relevant files to a non-write protected work disk with sufficient space.


For a summary of the programs on a diskette, read the file HELP.DOC.
HELP.DOC contains a one line summary section for all programs on the disk.
Many programs will come with a separate documentation file with extension
".DOC". These documentation files should prove quite helpful in learning how
to use the programs. To execute a program with the specified extension:


EXE Type the program name leaving off the extension.
COM Type the program name leaving off the extension.
BAS Type BASICA (or if you have a clone, the name of your BASIC
interpreter, such as GWBASIC) followed by the program name.

The programs distributed may be in subdirectories. To access a program in a
subdirectory, execute the DOS command "CHDIR (directory name)". This will then
make the specified directory the current one and the programs in it will be
directly accessible.


All files contained on this disk are either in the public domain or are
user-supported software, or are copyrighted by MicroCom Systems.
User-supported software is copyrighted and subject to restricted use as per the
author specifications. Some user-supported software may require non-voluntary
contributions. Please remember that the abundance of good useful user
supported software is due to talented programmers spending much of their free
time writing software and that any contribution you make helps promote the
writing of more such software. To the best of our knowledge we distribute only
programs for which distribution is permitted or for which we have received
explicit permission from the author or copyright holder.

This file is copyrighted and permission is granted to make copies only for
personal use (this precludes distribution in any form, including placing on
bulletin boards, selling, et cetera). Additionally the arrangement of programs
on this disk, and the naming/numbering and compilation organization of the
MicroCom Collection (TM) is copyrighted.

not carry for our evaluation. Also reviews of programs which you have tried
or suggestions as to how we can better serve you in the future would be very
much appreciated. Thank you.
