SHAREWARE MARKETING

What is shareware?

Shareware is a marketing concept in which copyrighted software
products are distributed by allowing duplication of the program
for evaluation by interested parties. The program developer
receives payment from the users after they have determined that
the product meets their needs. The motivations for making
payment for a shareware program are honest payment for a valuable
software tool, desire for support, updates, enhancements and
documentation, and finally to help encourage shareware authors to
produce additional quality programs.


What happens when I register?

Mustang Software believes that a registration of one of our
shareware products is a commitment of support from an end user.
Every registration of every Mustang Software product is followed
by an immediate acknowledgment and shipment of the latest version
of the program and documentation. Orders are shipped UPS 2nd day
air on the same day payment is received. Registered users are
placed on our mailing list and receive automatic notifications of
all updates and future product releases.

Will my registration matter?

YES! Mustang Software employs programming, technical support and
administrative staff on a FULL TIME basis. Your registration
ensures that we can continue to grow, improve our product, and be
here when you call for support. Without registrations we could
not remain in business to SERVE YOU! If PrtLabel meets your
needs as a label printing utility, we encourage you to support
the shareware concept by sending in your registration. See the
Registration form at the end of this documentation for details.

You may make as many copies of PrtLabel as you wish, give the
program to anyone you wish, but you may not sell it. If you find
the program useful and you continue to use it, you must make
payment of $25.00 to Mustang Software. Site licenses and a
network version are available if needed, call for details. You
may not alter, decompile, disassemble, or reverse-engineer the
Software, remove or obscure the Mustang Software copyright and

REQUIREMENTS

IBM or compatible computer
256K of memory
1 diskette drive of any kind
Monochrome or color display
Any type Printer
(note that fonts are printer dependent)

-------------------------------------------------




OVERVIEW & INSTALLATION

PrtLabel is an easy to use, menu driven utility which will print
labels in a variety of formats. You simply tell PrtLabel the
size and shape of the label and type in the text you want
printed. You can easily include special fonts anywhere in your
text such as condensed, double wide or italics. Want a border
around your message? Go ahead and select from 4 border line
types and simply draw it with the cursor keys! When you're done
don't forget to save your label creation for selection later from
the "Label Directory". PrtLabel even has an option to
sequentially number each label for serialization applications.
PrtLabel works with virtually any printer, although special fonts
may be limited by your printer's capabilities. PrtLabel includes
a number of pre-coded printer definitions, and allows custom
printer definitions to be added and saved as desired.

The first thing you should do to install Prtlabel is use to
make a backup of your original PrtLabel files master diskette.
You may use the copied files as your working version,
or if you have a hard disk you may copy the entire contents
of the master files to a subdirectory of your choice on your
hard disk. It is important to keep ALL of the Prtlabel files
together since several PrtLabel features look for specific
support files in the same directory as the main program files.
Once you have created a working copy of the program, change to
the proper drive and subdirectory for the working copy and type
PrtLabel at the DOS prompt.

This documentation will review the complete operation of PrtLabel
in detail. If you feel comfortable using your computer and

--------------

PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------

printer, you will probably be able to run the program and refer
to this file as a reference item as needed. PrtLabel includes
extensive context sensitive help which is available anytime by
pressing the F1 key. Pressing F1 a second time presents an index
of help topics available. Within a particular HELP screen you
may see other help topics which are displayed in a different
color or as highlighted characters. Use the arrow keys to select
other help topics as desired.

SETUP

The first screen in PrtLabel presents you with four choices, two
of which have a direct bearing on how your labels will print and
what kind of labels you are using. Menu selections are made by
moving the highlight bar over the item desired and pressing
ENTER, or by simply pressing the highlighted letter for the
command option desired regardless of the highlight bar position.

The first thing you need to do after starting PrtLabel is to set
up the program to work properly with your printer. Select
PRINTER SETUP by pressing "P" which will display the PrtLabel
Printer Setup Menu. Although this menu may look complicated and
technical, you will find that for most users the setup process
simply requires choosing a printer name from a pre-defined list.
Printer selection begins with Loading a printer setup using the
F2 key as indicated in the lower portion of the screen.

F2 displays a window showing all files in the current directory
with the extension .PRN, which indicates a PrtLabel Printer
Definition File. The printers in the following list are pre-
defined and can be installed by highlighting the appropriate
name. Note that the codes for Double-Wide print are not included
in printer definitions even for printers which may support that
capability. An asterisk (*) in the font field indicates that a
printer may support a font, but the font codes are not entered
since the codes were not known when the definitions were
compiled. You may add the proper codes from your printer manual
if desired. See the section on Printer Setup later in this
documentation.

As indicated previously, you may add or modify the codes in this
screen if desired. For complete details of printer code
modification please see PRINTER SETUP MODIFICATION later in the
manual.

After selecting your printer, press the SAVE key F3 and save the
settings using the printer name "DEFAULT". This creates the
printer definition file named DEFAULT.PRN which is used by
PrtLabel when labels are printed.

PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------

MAIN MENU

PrtLabel's Main Menu offers four choices which are used to enter
label information, set up your printer, get information on our
products and to exit the PrtLabel program. Menu choices are made
by moving the highlight bar over the desired item and pressing
ENTER or by pressing the highlighted choice letter.


DEFINE LABEL

This choice displays the main label definition screen. This
single screen is used to perform all label functions including
loading, saving and printing. You use it to determine the size,
shape, text and attributes for the labels to be printed. When
DEFINE LABEL is first selected, the cursor is positioned in the
lower portion of the screen to begin the label parameter
definition.

Number of Labels -

This field tells PrtLabel how many labels will be printed. Any
number between 1 and 9,999 may be entered.

Height of Labels -

This field represents the number of lines to be printed on each
label. Standard 3 1/2" x 15/16" labels are 6 lines "high".
Always enter the number of PRINTED lines that will fit on a
label. PrtLabel will accept a number between 2 and 12. The
Default is set at 6 with 2 lines added between labels (see Space
Between Labels).

Width of Labels -

This field indicates the width of your labels in characters. The
measurement is made differently depending on whether you have
"one-up" or multiple labels across a page (see Labels per Line
below). The width for single labels may be entered as the actual
number of characters that will fit on the label. For multiple
labels across a page it MUST be measured as the number of
characters needed to get from the first character of the first
label to the first character of the second label. Standard 3
1/2" x 15/16" labels are 35 characters wide if used one across a
page (35 characters fit on a label). For "2-up" labels you would
need to enter 38 to indicate the starting position of the second
label. PrtLabel will accept a number between 1 and 70. If you
reduce the width of a previously saved label, you will have to
type the information again and resave the label with the new width.


--------------
9












PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Space Between Labels -

This field indicates the number of lines between labels
vertically. You should enter ONLY the number of lines necessary
to get from the last line of one label to the first line of the
next. PrtLabel uses this number to add Line Feeds to get to the
next label. When added to the Height of Labels, this number
indicates how many lines from the top of one label to the top of
the next.

Left Margin -

The Left Margin indicates the number of blank spaces inserted on
the left side of the label, prior to printing the first
character. Remember, all printed lines will have this number of
blank spaces inserted at the left edge. The best way to set up
your labels is to position the print head at the first character
position and set the Left Margin to zero. Left Margin spacing is
added only to the left margin of each line and will not be added
to the second or subsequent labels if there is more than 1 label
across a page.

Labels per Line -

This field tells PrtLabel how many columns of labels are to
printed on a page. PrtLabel allows you to use labels up to 8
wide. Positioning multiple labels can be difficult, especially
if a Left Margin is used. CAUTION: Mixed use of Condensed,
Double Wide or Super Script will not function properly on labels
that are more than one across a page. This results from the fact
that each of these fonts cause a varied number of characters per
inch during the time the font is in use. You may print the
entire label in a non-standard width font as long as you properly
indicate the spacing values to PrtLabel based on the number of
characters per inch used by the font. For example, Condensed
mode on many printers actually prints at 17 characters per inch.
Using the standard 3 1/2 x 15/16 labels with 1/4" between each
label horizontally you should set the width of multi-column
labels to 64 since the distance from the first character of the
first label to the first character of the second is actually
3.75" (3.75" x 17cpi = 64).

Start # for Sequence -

PrtLabel offers the ability to print sequenced numbers on each
label starting with a value of your choice. For example, you may
want to serialize labels starting at 250001 for some application.
In this case the first label would be printed with 250001, the

--------------
10













PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------

second 250002, etc. A sequence is entered on the label through
the special ALT key combination ALT N. which is covered in
additional detail later in this chapter. Sequence fields may
contain only integer number values and are right justified within
the allotted space.

Width for Sequence -

If you elect to make use of sequenced fields in your labels,
PrtLabel needs to know how many characters to reserve for the
ever expanding number. This number also controls whether the
number will be printed with leading blanks filled with zeros or
spaces. The default padding is the space character but can be
overridden by entering a minus number in this field. A -4
indicates that all numbers will appear with leading zeros, i.e.
0001, 0002, etc. Entering just a 4 results in 1, 2, etc.
Enter the maximum number of digits possible considering the
starting sequence number and the number of labels to be printed.
In the above example using a starting number of 250001, the width
would be 6 unless more than 749,998 labels were to be printed.
More information on number positioning is contained under the
Text Entry section.

Once the label parameters have been defined, we change to the
actual label text entry portion of the screen. The PgUp and PgDn
keys alternate the cursor from the lower parameter section to the
upper text entry section of the screen.






















--------------

PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------


BASIC TEXT ENTRY

Text entry in PrtLabel is very straight forward and makes use of
standard editing keys and WordStar alternates as follows:

STANDARD KEY FUNCTION WORDSTAR KEY
-------------------- ------------------------- ------------
Shift F1 - clears ENTIRE label text
Del - delete character above cursor.
Backspace - delete character left of cursor.
Insert - toggle insert/overtype mode.
Arrow Keys - move one character at a time. CTRL S,D,E,X
Ctrl L/R Arrow - move one word at a time. CTRL A,F
Home - move to the line beginning. CTRL Q-S
End - move to line end. CTRL Q-D
CTRL Y - delete entire line. CTRL Y
TAB - moves to the beginning of the next line. CTRL I
Shift TAB - moves to the beginning of the prior line.
CTRL PgUp - moves to the first line. CTRL Q-R
CTRL PgDn - moves to the last line. CTRL Q-C
PgDn - change to the lower parameter screen.
ESC - return to menu, leave label in memory.

CTRL P - this special character is used to enter control
characters directly into the text. The ^P character must be
entered PRIOR to the actual character you desire to be embedded
in the text. For example, to enter a CTRL G (the bell), you
would press CTRL P (the cursor gets very large) followed by CTRL
G. The actual character shown on screen is a capital G in a
contrasting shade to normal text. This feature is included,
although there are not many uses that come to mind immediately.


ADVANCED TEXT & CODE ENTRY

In addition to entering plain text into a label, there are
several additional Attribute Characters and codes that may be
used to control the appearance of text and printer performance.
These attributes are entered through the use of ALT key codes,
and instruct your printer to turn on and off the appropriate
fonts. Options available are:







--------------
12












PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------



Alt E - Emphasize Text (BOLD)
Alt C - Condensed Text
Alt D - Double Wide Text
Alt U - Underlined Text
Alt I - Italics
Alt A - User defined printer code A
Alt B - User defined printer code B
Alt R - Printer reset code
Alt N - Place sequenced number in text


When you press an ALT key combination, an invisible format code
is placed in the text and takes effect. The format status line
located between the text entry and parameter sections will
display the font placed in effect. The particular font will
continue until the ALT format key is pressed a second time to end
the format command. Whenever the cursor is located between TWO
of the same format codes, the format status line below the label
text will show the type of format in use. To erase a format code
in the text, move the cursor until the format code becomes
activated on the status line and immediately press the
appropriate ALT format key. Move the cursor again until the
format code again becomes activated on the status line and again
press the ALT format key to delete the 2nd code.

In addition to the standard codes for Emphasized (Bold),
Condensed, Double Wide, Italics and Underline, you may define two
"User defined" fonts, A & B. Prior to using these they must be
defined in your printer definition file with the proper codes to
turn each on and off. See the section of PRINTER SETUP for
details. The user defined fonts are activated with ALT A and ALT
B.

Two additional codes may be placed in label text, ALT N and ALT
R. ALT N indicates the start of a Sequenced Numeric Field.
Pressing ALT N displays a highlighted letter N which marks the
LEFTMOST character position for the number sequence. Remember
that sequenced numbers are RIGHT justified within the width of
the field, and that they are padded with either spaces or leading
zeros depending on the number and sign in the WIDTH OF SEQUENCE
field in the parameter section. For example, if you want to
include a serial number consisting of four digits you would enter
the following on your label:

Serial # N where N is the ALT N character.


--------------
13












PrtLabel ver. 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------------

This results in a label with the following:

Serial # 0001 if you used a -4 to enable leading zeros or

Serial # 1 if you used a 4 to enable leading spaces.

ALT R places a hidden Printer Reset code in the text. This might
be used as the last label character to tell the printer to return
to its default power on state. Note that the printer definition
files included with PrtLabel do NOT have the codes for Printer
Reset included. In order to make use of this function, you must
first modify your printer definition file to include the proper
codes for reset. See PRINTER SETUP for details on this process.

Labels can also include box drawing characters constructed from
the IBM character set single line, double, or combinations as
desired. The function keys F5 through F10 are used to enter
these characters in the text. Pressing the function key causes
the associated character to be placed in the text at the cursor
position. You can change the type of lines used by F5 - F10 from
double to single or combined single/double with the SHIFT F10
Change Frame key (hold down the Shift key and press F10).

Once you have entered the label text and print parameters you are
ready to test print a few labels. By testing only 2 labels you
will discover any problems or formatting errors and can make the
appropriate corrections. Press F4 to begin printing your test
labels. Once your format is proper, you may want to SAVE the
label definition for later use with the F3 key. Pressing F3
prompts you for a label name to use for the current parameters
and text. The eight character name you specify is used as a file
name with the extension .LBL which makes it available from the
LOAD key F2. This "Label Directory" is a handy way to keep
copies of labels you use on a regular basis.

The best way to learn label formatting is by trial and error.
Each printer requires a slightly different location for the
printhead at Top of Form, and each label setup requires a trial
run. We have not run across any labels that cannot be properly
formatted after just a few variations of the available
information.

PRINTER SETUP

Earlier in this manual you were instructed to set up the program
to work properly with your printer by selecting PRINTER SETUP and
loading your printer name from the list provided. If your
printer was not included in the list, or if you want to modify
the printer codes, you may do so from this menu choice.

The following is a summary of printer setup rules:

Printer settings are saved individually by filename with the
extension .PRN, and the ONLY .PRN file used by PrtLabel at print
time is DEFAULT.PRN. Any printer file may be modified and re-
saved under a different name, or as the DEFAULT.PRN file. Each
line of the printer definition file contains 10 entry areas
enclosed in brackets i.e. [ 0], and each line relates only to one
printer function. For example, the first line offers 10
different entry areas to indicate the codes for Emphasis On
(Bold). Each entry area allows a three-digit decimal number
which should be the ASCII value of the required code.

As an example, we will review the codes for the EPSON LQ-1500
printer. In order to activate Emphasized (Bold) the manual
indicates the codes are the ESCAPE character followed by G. The
ASCII value in decimal for ESC is 27 and the value for upper case
G is 71. The correct entry for the line is then:

Emphasis On [027] [071] [ 0] [ 0] [ 0] [ 0] [ 0] etc.

Codes for printer functions are located in your printer manual.
As indicated previously, many printers support codes for Double
Wide printing and they have NOT been included in the printer
definition files included with Prtlabel. In order to make use of
the ALT D code for Double Wide you must first modify your printer
file to include the proper codes, and then save that file as
DEFAULT.PRN.

In addition to the standard format codes you may also specify 2
other User Defined fonts for use in labels. These may be
anything your printer supports such as superscript, variable pitch
or any other available option. Lastly, you may want to enter
your printer reset codes which are a series of codes that return
the printer to the power on defaults. Again, see your printer
manual for the appropriate codes to enter in this section.

After making any changes to a printer definition file, don't
forget to save it under the proper printer name AND ALSO as
DEFAULT.PRN if you intend to use it with labels.
