Modified and additional procedures for
JPI TopSpeed Modula-2'sStr module

These files are intended to:

1) Improve Str's performance by taking advantage of the 8086
processor's built-in string-handling procedures through assembly language
routines in JPI's own AsmLib module plus the new StrAsm module, included
in this archive.

2) Add a new procedure, CardToString, which converts long cardinals
into decimal strings that can be left-filled with any character --
blank, zero, asterisk or whatever.

So far, these procedures have only been tested by me. I have used them
for several months without problems, but there may be undetected errors. If
you find any, please write to me at the address shown above.

Thank you,

-- Carl Neiburger
