1.0 The Binary Toolshed Product Distribution

The Binary Toolshed is committed to providing programs that make the
operations of computers easier. Through your support, we hope to
provide ongoing updates and enhancements to make this product even

Through the balance of this manual, unless specified otherwise, the term
ToolBOX is used to refer to the complete shareware product - containing
the TBOX and TBOXCFG programs, the BTSPATCH, TOASCII, TREE, and VIEW
utilities, and the associated documentation and sample files.


ToolBOX is distributed under the shareware concept. Shareware is a
unique marketing concept born of the computer revolution. Users are
allowed to obtain complete working programs to freely test and evaluate
for a limited time period. If they find the programs useful they are
required to register their copy of the program. The small registration
fee goes to support the authors and encourage them to continue to
improve the software.

Shareware depends on honesty. The computer programs are freely
distributed as finished products. The authors of this form of program
depend completely on the honesty of end users for compensation for their
work. If you use a shareware program, any shareware program, please be
honest and register your copy. Shareware is not free software. It
requires just as much work and effort to produce as the highly
advertised commercial products, but it usually sells for a small
fraction of the price.

Registering a shareware program also gives you the unique opportunity to
do something that is virtually impossible with most commercial software.
When you register, your comments and ideas are usually communicated
directly to the author of the program and the response you will receive
is from him/her. This fact assures you that your ideas are heard by
someone who is paying attention. It is also from this pool of
suggestions and ideas that future improvements are spawned.

Shareware companies in general don't spend millions of dollars doing
"market research" or advertising the heck out of their products in order
to sell you something that you have only read about. It is all up it is....fully like it, please buy it,
you don't .... erase it. Shareware that is of high quality at low
prices does tend to keep all software prices lower and is therefore a
necessity in its own right. When you support shareware you not only
receive the right to use a good program but you also make a statement to
the entire software industry.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. Make the
free world economy work! Register shareware.

ToolBOX is written and published by The Binary Toolshed, a member of the
Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). The ASP is a non-profit
organization of shareware authors dedicated to improving the quality of
shareware products, educating the public in the difference between
shareware and public domain programs, and arbitrating disputes between
shareware authors and customers if they should arise. You can be
assured that this product adheres to the highly professional standards

of that organization, and that the author has demonstrated a commitment
to this product and its registered users. If it's an "ASP" program, you
can trust it to perform well, and give you excellent value for your
money. ASP membership is granted only to those authors whose work has
been judged by the ASP membership committee to be of sufficiently high
quality to be considered "professional".

This program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware
Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle
works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem
with an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to
help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with
an ASP member, but does not provide technical support for members'
products. Please write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskeg-
on, MI 49442 or send a CompuServe message via CompuServe Mail to ASP

This license agreement governs your use of ToolBOX. If you have any
questions about it please contact The Binary Toolshed.

(1) Copyright: The ToolBOX program and all other programs and
document-ation distributed or shipped with it are Copyright 1992,
by the Binary Toolshed and are protected by Canadian and
international copyright law. In the rest of this document, this
collection of programs is referred to simply as "ToolBOX". You are
granted a license to use your copy of ToolBOX only under the terms
and conditions specified in this license agreement.

(2) Definitions: ToolBOX is distributed in two forms. A "registered"
copy of ToolBOX is a copy distributed on diskette, purchased from
The Binary Toolshed, and which includes a serial number and the
legend "registered" in the program sign-on message or help screen,
on the diskette label, and on references from the BTSPATCH program.
A "shareware" copy of ToolBOX is a copy distributed on diskette or
via an electronic bulletin board, on-line service, or other
electronic means, obtained from a shareware disk vendor, or
obtained from another individual, and which displays the legend
"Unregistered" for the functions identified above.

ToolBOX at no charge for a trial period of up to thirty days. If
you wish to continue using ToolBOX after that period, you must
purchase a registered copy. If you choose not to purchase a
registered copy, you must stop using ToolBOX, though you may keep
copies and pass them along to others.

(5) Use of One Copy on Two Computers: If you have a registered copy of
ToolBOX which is licensed for use on a single computer, you may
install it on two computers (for example, at work and at home),
provided there is no possibility that the two computers will be in
use at the same time, and provided that you yourself have purchased
ToolBOX, or if ToolBOX was purchased by your employer, that you
have your employer's explicit permission to install ToolBOX on two
systems as described in this paragraph. The right to install one

not distribute for a fee, or in any way sell copies of ToolBOX or

5.0 Order/Registration Information

If you have already paid for and registered ToolBOX, thank you. If you
obtained ToolBOX from a shareware disk vendor, an on-line computer
service or bulletin board, a friend or colleague, or another similar
source, you have an unregistered (trial) copy. As the copyright holder
for ToolBOX, The Binary Toolshed allows and encourages you to use this
trial copy without charge for a limited period of time, under the terms
of the ToolBOX license agreement (see Section 4). After this thirty day
period expires, you must purchase (register and pay for) ToolBOX to
continue using it.

This shareware distribution method allows you to determine whether the
program meets your needs before you pay for it.

As a registered user, you are entitled to a number of privileges:

- a diskette with the latest version of the ToolBOX program will
be mailed to you.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
