*** SIR! MASTER FILE SYSTEM ***
There are many times I would be working on my computer and wish to make a
call to a friend of mine. I usually don't keep my address book around my
system. @#$%&! How frustrating it is to go downstairs to grab the book.
Now, I just created a "Rolodex-type" file system which will take care of
all my needs.
SIR!'s SPECIAL FEATURES:
Super 3-D color graphic effects
Up to 99 names (cards) ...Later, more.
Place a call via modem (one of two numbers)
Flag particular names to print, either in list or envelope form
Create many other databases
Default filename = PERSONAL.DTA
You may automatically load a different filename (excluding extension), that
has been already created by SIR!.
[Alt-A] To add names (cards) to the existing workfile.
Note: Place last name first, followed by a comma and then last
Enter a blank in the NAME field when fisnished.
SIR! will search for proper state (if any)
[Alt-C] Call one of two numbers displayed on the active card.
Use the arrow keys to select the telephone number you wish.
Note: Make sure that you configure your communication port at the
beginning of each creation of a workfile ([Alt-V]).
[Alt-D] Delete active card from the database.
[Alt-F] Flag cards to be printed later. Acts like a toggle switch.
[Alt-L] Load a new workfile into memory already created by SIR!.
Note: Type in the filename excluding extension.

Note: If you erase the name, SIR! will not accept it. Use [Alt-D]
if you wish to delete the card.
[Alt-N] To create a new workfile.
Note: Type in the new filename excluding extension.
[Alt-P] Print Envelopes or Listings
Envelopes: Prints envelope off of the active card. Tab set at 20.
Prints first name and last name. Don't worry how it
appears on the card. Although, make sure that a comma
seperates the last name from the first.
Listing: Either flagged names or whole listing.
One or two columns
Sorted by different fields and printed.
[Alt-S] Do a search routine. Case insensitive.
Note: Only NAMES are serached. Use /W after the $tring for whole
[Alt-V] Change communication parameters.
Note: Delault= COM1:, Tone.
If it is different, make sure you change it each time you create
a new workfile. It is not necessary to change each time you run
[Alt-X] Exits SIR! Closes workfile and returns to DOS.
[Alt-Z] DOS Shell.
Note: Temporarily halts SIR! and places you into DOS. Type "EXIT"
at the DOS prompt to return to SIR!
