Contents of the README file
These diskettes contain files for Version 8 of Icon for MS-DOS as follows:
icon.arcexecutable binaries [474KB]
docs.arcarchived documents [96KB]
samples.arcarchived sample programs and data [3KB]
The figures in brackets indicate the approximate amount of disk space
needed for the unloaded files. It is not necessary to keep all the
executable binary files; about 270KB will suffice for the minimum
The executable files should be unloaded on a place on your PATH specification.
For example, if this diskette is mounted in your A drive and you set
your current directory to where you want the files, the following
unloads the executable binary files:
There are two executors, one that is smaller but does not support large-
integer arithmetic, and a larger one that does support large-integer
arithmetic. The first is named iconx.exe and the second is named iconxl.exe.
The latter can be given the standard name as follows:
rename iconxl.exe iconx.exe
More information about the executors is given in ipd132.doc in docs.arc.
The documents and sample programs can be unloaded in a similar fashion
to the executable files.
