This should be where you would get all the 'down and dirty info' about how
evrything runs, and I'll try not to disappoint. DBMENU was written to be
_VERY_ simple to run. It does have a few quirks and here they are

* It depends on other units
*Mulkey (a rewrite is included)
*GetFld (a rewrite is included *SUPPORT FOR THIS IS NOT PROVIDED*)
it was the best choice I have yet found for field input
*TPRO - ask Kim or Brian for details. It is a superb package
*TACCESS - otherwise known as DATABASE TOOLBOX
* The date fields are written as YYYY/MM/DD for easier sorting
* It is written for 'flat files' meaning no releation between databases. There
are provisions to get a record and then relate to other records.

I am open to all suggestions for rewrites, as I consider this to be version
0.9 and not a full blown package. Please take it and experiment! I have
included a _very_ simple example, but no other docs [I consider it _THAT_

For menu handling, please refer to the TPRO manual. For those of you who
haven't yet purchased TPRO, just use cursor keys and then enter.

Tips on field input:
The delete, backspace and enter keys will work as expected
The field will use the previous data
Control-enter will take you past a required field [non-blank or valid_date_field]
Escape will take you to the end of a record

THIS IS NOT FREEWARE. If you use the package
I at least expect to get some message on the forum.
Donations of money or time are also welcomed.
