Infoline was compiled using GCC 2.233 and the IBM Toolkit 2.0.
Early beta-versions were developed and compiled using the GCC port
EMX 0.8f by Eberhard Mattes.
I currently run OS/2 2.1 GA (US), although Infoline should also work with
previous and future versions of OS/2 2.X.
Infoline is entirely 32-bit, so it will _not_ work with OS/2 1.X.
Infoline is a simple tool to display some more or less essential system
information on the desktop. This include current date & time, size of the
swapper.dat, time since OS/2 was last restarted and the available virtual
memory. Each feature can be disabled to reduce CPU-load, although I already
did my best to minimize CPU-stress. The Swapper.dat is checked every five
timer-ticks (5s), uptime is updated once a minute. Vmem and Date/Time are
set on a per-timer basis.
If you don't shutdown Infoline correctly (System shutdown, close via window
list etc.) you'll get a warning message.
I implemented this feature to find out if the system was reset (e.g. via
powerfailure) while I was away. This warning can also be disabled.
To hide the frame double-click the LEFT mouse-button on the status line.
A double-click with the RIGHT mouse-button invokes the options dialog.
Both features can also be accessed via the system menu (of course only
when the frame is not hidden).
4. Infoline and OS2.INI
Infolinie stores options and windowsettings in OS/2's USER_INI.
If you no longer wish to use Infoline you can remove the entries from the
INI file, as they will only waste space (approx. 200 characters).
To do this use the commandline option "/remove".
Syntax: INFOLINE /remove
On success you will hear three short beeps and Infoline will terminate.
NOTE: /remove can also be used to reset all options and the windowposition
to default values.
That's about it...
