What does such a diverse group such as the above have in common?

The above list, randomly selected, is only a small sample of
the notable people waiting to greet you with their most memorable
sayings in Famous Quotes 2.1.

In all, there are 5,640 quotes in this set, available for random
display.

The one feature that makes Famous_Quotes, 2.1, unique, is the high
caliber, stimulating nature, of its quotes. It is believed that there
are no quotes here that are either crude or vulgar, (i.e. it is
believed that these quotes are suitable for the family computer).
Famous_Quotes 2.1, will provide quotes that will stimulate,
inspire, amuse, and entertain.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

HOW TO USE THIS PROGRAM :

For a demo, just type in FQ20. A quote will appear on
the screen.

My favorite use for this program is to place it at the end of my
autoexec.bat so that a quote appears each time I boot my computer.
Another possible use, that I have seen implemented on some BBS boards,
is to display a quote or thought for the day when the user logs off the
BBS system.

To run the program outside the batch file, at the prompt, enter
famous20, followed by the path to the data file, famous20.quo, followed
by the path to the index file, famous20.idx. For example,

C> famous20 [path]famous20.quo [path]famous20.idx [options]

For the non-registered version, there currently is only one option.
If -N is added to the end of the command line, the quote number will be
displayed on the line above the quote.
