Introduction - What is SCROLLit? =======================================

SCROLLit is a memory resident (TSR) program that captures, in full
color, the lines of text that scroll off the top of the video screen and
stores them in an XMS, EMS or conventional memory 'scrollback' buffer of
a size specified by the user. A fast compression technique is used to
store more than twice the number of lines in the available buffer space.
SCROLLit can be activated or 'popped up' over any non-graphical program
by pressing the Scroll Lock key. Once activated, SCROLLit will let you
scroll back through this saved information, line by line or page by
page. SCROLLit has a fast search capability as well as a block-write
feature that allows you to mark a block of lines for writing to a disk
file or sending to your printer.

For details on how to use SCROLLit, please refer to the SCROLLIT.DOC
documentation file.

Requirements ===========================================================

SCROLLit requires DOS 3.1 or above and supports all monitor/video
combinations (monochrome or color; MDA/CGA/EGA/MCGA/VGA or Hercules).

Quick Start ============================================================

SCROLLit can be installed with a 100k buffer by typing:

SCROLLit 100

SCROLLit can then by activated by pressing the Scroll Lock key. Once
activated, press the F1 key for a quick command summary. When SCROLLit
is installed, the Scroll Lock key no longer toggles your Scroll Lock
light on and off. Instead press Alt-Scroll Lock.

SCROLLit can be removed from memory by typing:

SCROLLit /U

Refer to Appendix 3 in SCROLLIT.DOC for a command line summary, or type:

SCROLLit /?

Special Cases ==========================================================

Qmodem/Telix users: You will need to configure your communications
software to use the BIOS to perform screen scrolling. This will allow
SCROLLit to intercept and save the lines that scroll off the top of the
screen. If SCROLLit isn't capturing your scrolling lines, chances are
you need to switch to BIOS screen scrolling. See Appendix 1 in
SCROLLIT.DOC. Procomm Plus and Commo always uses the BIOS for screen
scrolling so no reconfiguring is necessary.

Desqview users: SCROLLit is Desqview aware. You will need to load
SCROLLit in the Desqview window(s) where you want to capture scrolling.
See Appendix 2 in SCROLLIT.DOC.

The Last Byte Memory Manager users: Some versions of TLB's HIGHTSR
program appear to have difficulty with TSR parameters beginning with a
slash (/). SCROLLit accepts either slashes or dashes (-). For example,
to install SCROLLit in high memory with a 100k EMS buffer, type:

HIGHTSR SCROLLIT 100 -E

Registered users of older versions of SCROLLit: Please refer to
WHATSNEW.DOC to see what has changed since your version of SCROLLit.
Your registration key will work with this and all future versions of
SCROLLit. Thank you for supporting the shareware concept.
