DNOTE*IT INTRODUCTION
-------------------------------------------------------------------




INTRODUCTION
------------


DNOTE*IT is a utility that will allow the user to enter
up to 90 characters of text for each file in a given Dos
directory. This utility eliminates the burden of remembering
what a file is and what it is used for. This is an excellent
utility for users with a hard disk that contains large numbers
of files.

Comments and suggestions about DNOTE*IT can be sent to the
author of DNOTE*IT directly (see Registration form) or a
message can be sent on GEnie (mail address WHE) or CompuServe
(76430,35).
