The bottom line of the display tells you what keys to press. Refer
to this line if you need help.

Use the cursor keys plus , , , and to move
the selector bar. To select a highlighted command, press .

Select one of the categories--WordPerfect, dBASE, 1-2-3, and so on.
This will display instructions about this program's utilities. Use
the cursor keys plus , , , and to scroll the
text up and down. For example, if you are reading these notes on
screen, press now to see more instructions...

Select the "Print Manual" command from the menu. Make sure your
printer is on and has paper. Then, press P to begin printing. Press
at any time to cancel printing and return to the menu.

Each utility, macro, and batch file is stored in a separate disk
directory. The directory names begin with underscores to avoid
possible conflicts with other directories in your system. From DOS,
use the CD command to change to a directory. For example, type CD
\_WP to change to the _WP directory. Inside each directory is a
README text file that describes how to use the utilities stored
there. (Some directories have more than one utility, others have
only one.) The text in these README files is the same as the text
displayed and printed by the STAR.EXE program.

You might want to copy the files on this diskette to your hard drive.
To do this, insert the diskette in drive A: and type A:INSTALL A: C:
where C: is the letter of your hard drive. The INSTALL.BAT batch
file creates a new directory named STAR1 on your hard disk. You may
also use DOS commands COPY and XCOPY to copy the diskette files.

I wrote STAR.EXE in Turbo Pascal 5.0 using the Turbo Professional
toolkit from TurboPower Software. The PC World logo (visible only on
graphics displays) was designed by Karl Koessel. Special thanks
to the many readers who have contributed to Star-Dot-Star. (Don't
forget--we pay cold cash for your hot tips! See page 4 in any
recent PC World issue for details on where to send your own
contributions.) Enjoy!
