echo WELCOME TO INFORMATION PLEASE
echo
echo INFORMATION PLEASE is a free-form database program that allows you to
echo store various length records (ie paragraphs) and search, display and
echo print them according to keyword matches. This disk contains an
echo installation program that will load INFORMATION PLEASE! onto your hard
echo hard disk (or another floppy). You must have about 350K on your disk.
echo
echo To install the program enter the command
echo
echo INSTALL d: \directory
echo
echo where d: is the name of the drive where you want to install IP,
echo and \directory is the directory name where you want program to reside.
echo For example, to load to a hard disk, the command will probably be
echo
echo INSTALL C: \IP
echo
echo (make sure there is a blank between the C: and the \)
echo
echo To load to a floppy disk in drive B: you would use the command
echo INSTALL B: \ (again, a blank between B: and \).
echo
pause
cls
echo
echo To print the documentation on this disk, use the command
echo
echo PRINTDOC filename.doc
echo
echo For example, to print the file IP.DOC, you would enter
echo
echo PRINTDOC IP.DOC
echo
echo The "DOC" files on this disk are:
echo
DIR *.DOC
echo
echo Now enter the appropriate PRINTDOC command to print the documentation
