BGINAMES.EXE

Borland has a graphics interface that they use and supply with their 'c'
compilers. They refer to it as BGI or Borland Graphics Interface. Character
fonts have been created to be used by their drivers so you can get a bit
creative in your 'c' programs. The usage of their character (*.chr) files
is easy. The one thing that I can never seem to figure out is just what all
of these character fonts look like, so when I go to use one, I know just which
one I want to use in my program.

Put all of your ????.chr files in one directory. I have collected about 10
of them from various versions of Borland Software. They seem to be almost
everywhere in their programs. Now add the few files I have zipped and POW!
Now you have a collection (I have supplied two if you don't have any).

Run BGINAMES and it will not only print a sample of the text, but it will
display the signature from within the file.

Its not much of a program but it is cute.
