To register Excelsior, simply run the register program. (Type

will be explained by the registration program.


IV. DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE

Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software
before buying it. If you try a shareware program and continue
using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs
differ on details -- some request registration while others
require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With
registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue
using the software to an updated program with printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both shareware and commercial software,
and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific
exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished
programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are
of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs
and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of
distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy
and distribute the software, either to the general public or to a
specific group. For example, some authors require written
permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their
shareware.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You
should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook,
whether it's commercial or shareware. The shareware system makes
fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy.
And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware
has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the
product, you don't pay for it.


V. DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT

Users of Excelsior must accept this disclaimer of warranty:
"Excelsior is supplied as is. The authors disclaim all
warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation,
the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose.
The authors assume no liability for damages, direct or conse-
quential, which may result from the use of Excelsior."

Excelsior is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge
to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your
friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of
another system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to
provide personal computer users with quality software without
high prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to
continue to develop new products. If you find this program
useful and find that you are using Excelsior and continue to use
Excelsior after a TEN (10) day trial period, you must make a reg-
istration payment of $20 (US) to Castle Software. The $20 registration
fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one
time. You must treat this software just like a book. An example
is that this software may be used by any number of people and may
be freely moved from one computer location to another, so long as
there is no possibility of it being used at one location while
it's being used at another - just as a book cannot be read by two
different persons at the same time.

Anyone distributing Excelsior for any kind of remuneration must
comply with the restrictions detailed in the VENDOR.DOC file
(supplied on this disk). If the vendor is in compliance with all
of the specified restrictions, no written permission is necessary
beyond the VENDOR.DOC file and such distributors may begin offer-
ing Excelsior immediately. (However, Castle Software must still be
advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date with the
latest version of Excelsior.)

You are encouraged to pass a copy of Excelsior along to your
friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their
copy if they find that they can use it. All registered users
will receive a copy of the latest version of Excelsior, printed
manuals, the opportunity to obtain a hint book, and discounts on
other Castle Software products.
