Read Me -- Introductory information for FLEXCOPY.

FlexCopy is a general purpose file copying utility for MS-DOS.
It offers a number of advantages over the built-in COPY command,
especially the ability to copy multiple, unrelated files with a
single command. See the file FLEXCOPY.DOC for full instructions
on the use of FlexCopy.

This .ZIP file includes the FlexCopy program and documentation,
and the Modula-2 source files for the program, other than
relatively standard library functions. A batch file showing the
correct compilation order is also included. FlexCopy is released
into the public domain by it's author, who is interested in
hearing about bugs, comments or enhancements.

The following files should be contained in the FlexCopy .ZIP file:

README.1ST -- This information file.

FLEXCOPY.EXE -- The FlexCopy program and documentation.

BUILD.BAT -- A batch file to recompile and link FlexCopy
