Contents of the README.DOC file

*** ZSAM ***

In this archive, you should find the following files:

ZSAM.ASMThis is the 8088 assembly language source for ZSAM, the
B-Tree file management system described in "Some Assembly
Required", BYTE Magazine. The code is compatible with
Borland's TASM assembler, and with a little work you
should be able to feed it to MASM.

ZTEMPL.CA "template" file containing all the C interface source
code. Use this when you're building a ZSAM application.

ZMAKEF.CThis program lets you build ZSAM key and data files.
Its prompts should be pretty explanatory. There are
also comments in the source to help you.

ZMAKEBIB.CThis program builds the key and data files used in the
bibliography database described in part III of
"Trees 'N Keys".

ZINPUT.DATRaw data that you can feed to ZMAKEBIB.C.

ZINPUT.FRMA description of the format of the data in ZINPUT.DAT.

ZSAM is more-or-less in the public domain. You may use it, pass it
along to others, and do whatever you want. If you end up modifying it
and using it in a commercial application, please give conspicuous
mention of its source (namely, me....Rick Grehan). I'll try and
keep updates coming as I have time to make them.

Though I won't classify ZSAM as shareware, I have spent a great deal of
time putting it together. Above-and-beyond the call of duty, you might
say. Any kind of donation you'd care to submit would be appreciated...
particularly if you end up making something worthwhile for yourself out
of ZSAM. I'm not going to make any hard-and-fast rules about this, 'cause
I know you've already laid out some cash just to get the article and
download the source.
