Thank for using AUTO PRICE 93.

PURPOSE OF PROGRAM

This program was originally written for individuals who planed
on purchasing a new automobile. The program provide a easy
way of price comparisons between cars and/or options and
provide price information when dealing with a new car
salesman. The program provides singular information found in
car pricing books that are sold in the magazine racks. AUTO
PRICE 93 replaces the book, scratch pad, and calculator, while
providing instant running cost as changes are made.


SHAREWARE

AUTO PRICE 93 for shareware is being released on Dec 15,
1993. Some of the cars data has not been completed or
received. Most of these are marked with a '?' in front of
their name. Trucks are supported this year, however,
they are in process of being entered at the time of this
release. Note: All mini-vans, utility, pickups, and vans
are included in the truck section of AUTO PRICE 93.

I would like to encourage you to register AUTO PRICE 93.
When you register the program, the latest update will be
sent, and INVOICE prices will be included.


INSTALLATION

The shareware version of AUTO PRICE 93 can run from a
diskette larger than 360k, however, a hard disk is
recommended.

The only requirement to run AUTO PRICE 93, is that all files
must reside in the same directory. If you want to install
the system on a hard disk, create a new directory and then
"COPY" or "PKUNZIP" the diskette into that directory. For
example, to unzip a diskette from drive 'A' to a directory
named "93AP" on drive 'C', type the following from the "C>"
prompt:
MD 93AP
CD 93AP
[path]PKUNZIP A:AP93


STARTING AUTO PRICE 93

To run AUTO PRICE93, switch control to the disk/directory
containing AUTO PRICE 93 and type "AP93". This version of
AUTO PRICE 93 does direct screen IO. If you have display
problems, start the program with an "AP93 m" or "AP93 b"
command. The "AP93 m" command does direct screen IO in
monochrome (black & white). The "AP93 b" command uses BIOS for
screen IO in black & white. The displays will be noticeably
slower using BIOS.


WARNING

Do not attempt to modify the data files. Many of them have
been encrypted, and any modification to them may make them
unusable.


USER GUIDE

There is a on-line user guide the can be viewed and/or
printed from within AUTO PRICE 93. The GUIDE.TXT and
ORDER.TXT files are normal text file and can also be printed
via DOS print or copy command. Most user can run AUTO PRICE
93 without reading the Users Guide, however, it does contain
information that will explain many features of the program.

The current data base may not have all of the interactions
programmed into it. It may be possible to select two
conflicting options, or some other contradictory conditions.
These discrepancy will be corrected in time, but should not
make the program any less useful. Use the override features,
described in USER GUIDE, if the data base prevents a
legitimate selection.


COMMERCIAL USERS

In addition to individual user, loan officers, car dealers,
insurance agents, etc. may find this program useful in
their business. The program is not recommended for lease
company, car brokers, or other business that purchase
automobiles and base their cost on this program. AUTO PRICE
is updated only two or three times a year, therefore the
prices are usually several months behind manufactures price.

No fees can be charged for any output from the AUTO PRICE 93
program.

Any commercial client may provide a IBM PC compatible
computer with AUTO PRICE 93 program installed for their
customers use. For instance, a credit union may provide a
computer and printer in the lobby for its customers to price
out a new car. A XT computer with a hard drive is sufficient
to run AUTO PRICE 93. AUTO PRICE can be setup to run on
such a machine without the "Quit" option on the main menu.


REGISTER AUTO PRICE 93

Registering AUTO PRICE 93 has two advantages. First the
register version contains INVOICE PRICES. Second, you will

approximately June.
