EGA IMAGE EDITOR

Version 1.91

INTRO, BRIEF HISTORY, DISCLAIMER, and TERMS

EIE is a programming tool to help BGI users create images. (For
those of you I just lost, BGI stand for Borland Graphics Interface, and
BGI users are people who use a compiler by Borland such as Turbo
Pascal or Turbo C.) I wanted to be able to write simple little games
(just for kicks) in Turbo C without having to worry about the specifics
of the graphics. I wanted to be able to precreate the images and
compile them into the program. I'm sure there is probably a program
out there somewhere that does just exactly what this one does, but I
haven't found it. So I created EIE.
In programming EIE, I focused on EGA/VGA graphics because I have
an EGA. I made it compatible with CGA and Hercules, but I never tested
it with these systems, so you're on your own. I make no promises about
how this program will perform, or that it will not damage your
equipment. I have not intentionaly put any kind of destructive factor
in EIE. Use EIE at your own risk.
Try EIE out before you buy it. If you use it, please buy it. Oh,
don't worry; it's not even expensive. It only costs $15 (U.S. funds).
See the "Ordering" section later in this document for how to buy EIE.
