fit for full page

There are two bugs in the 256 color ET4000 driver that comes with the
OS/2 2.1 beta or OS/2 2.0 + Service Pack: 1) the driver does not stretch
the bitmap correctly so the Stretch to Fit Window option does not work
properly, and 2) the image under the dialog box or under the drop-down
menu is not re-drawn with the right colors. Use the Auto-Refresh option
if you have the second problem.
If you are using the 256 color ET4000 driver, for certain images such as
24-bit images displayed with Maximum Color Depth set to 256 colors, the
text that shows the cropping dimensions is garbled by a filled box.
This appears to be a bug in OS/2's palette manager or the driver.
If you are using a 256 color driver, when you exit PMJPEG, the system
colors do not immediately return to normal. The system colors are
gradually restored by OS/2. You can force the colors to change back by
opening and/or closing a window, such as the window list that pops up
when you hit CTL-ESC.

HOW TO REGISTER
If you use PMJPEG for more than 14 days, you are expected to register
PMJPEG. When you register, you will receive the latest version of
PMJPEG, a user manual, and a collection of JPEG images (we will put as
many as we can fit on 2 720k 3 1/2" floppies, on 1 1.44M
3 1/2" floppy, or on 4 360k 5 1/4" floppies). Also, the registered
version does not have the reminder-to-register screen at the start.
The registration fee is only $20. MA residents, add 5% sales tax to the
registration fee. US residents, add $4 for shipping and handling;
non-US residents, add $8 for shipping and handling. If you want PMJPEG
e-mailed to your account instead of having it physically mailed to you,
there is no extra shipping charge.
Updates are free but the shipping charge described above applies to updates.
Users who register PMJPEG and provide an e-mail address will automatically
receive updates via e-mail.
For e-mail registrations, you need to use a program called "uudecode" to
decode the uuencoded file that we e-mail to you. For your information,
a uuencoded file is a binary file that is converted to text by a program
called "uuencode". If your mail system rejects large messages, we will
split the uuencoded file into smaller parts before mailing the parts to
you, and you will need to edit the messages with a text editor before
you can decode them. Compuserve, for example, does not permit large
e-mail messages. Also, the uuencoded file is rather large; it is
approximately 300k for PMJPEG v.1.3. Compuserve users may find it less
expensive to receive PMJPEG via U.S. Mail.
Registrations with the incorrect fee or with non-US currency will be

Registration of PMJPEG is based on "personal usage." Corporate or
organizational users must register all copies used on an individual
basis; a specific person (name) must be explicitly assigned to each
registrant who will be provided with a personalized copy of PMJPEG.
Registration grants a specific person (not an organization or
corporate entity) the right to use PMJPEG.
Although we will try to mail your copy of PMJPEG 1-3 weeks after
we receive your registration, please allow up to 4-6 weeks for
