I find the program extremely useful, use it however you wish. I release
it unto the public domain.

This program is written in QuickBasic 4.5 using PDQ and QuickPak Pro
by Crescent Software (1-800-352-2742). The libraries by Crescent make

other programs without them. I also do not work for them I just like
their products very much.
