DBLPAGE is a utility which does four things. First it divide a
continuous feed document (text file) into pages. Secondly, the title
of the file and the page number are written after every 55 lines on
the bottom of the page. Thirdly, a page break ( ASCII character 12) is
then written. Finally, the pages are written to different output file
(i.e. filename.ODD and filename.EVN).

Print the filename.ODD (the odd-numbered pageges), turn the paper in
the printer over, and then print the filename.EVN (the even-numbered)
pages and voila! You have a document with text on both sides of the
paper.

If the first three characters on any line are "{**" a page break will
be forced at that point in the document. PAGE also strips Crtl-L's
and WordStar dot commands from the document.

Leave a 1-inch margin on the first page of the continuous form-feed
paper and everything will set up for DBLPAGE to space the pages
correctly. This task is done automatically by the BROTHER M-1709
printers amd many others as well.


SAMPLE CALL1: dblpage \tp\src\sortfile.pas

The output (SORTFILE.ODD and SORTFILE.EVN) will be place in the
\TP\SRC subdirectory.

SAMPLECALL2:
dblpage

DBLPAGE will then prompt you thus:

Source File:

Key in "A:BOB_NOTE.TXT" and the result will be BOB_NOTE.ODD and
BOB_NOTE.EVN on the A: drive.


SYNTAX:
[d:][path]dblpage {[d:][path][filename]}
