This disk contains the file TODO.EXE, a simple "TO DO" list manager. Copy
the program to your hard disk into a subdirectory which is included in your
PATH command (e.g. \DOS). (If you don't know which subdirectories are
included in your PATH specification, just type PATH at the C> prompt.)

Place this disk in drive A: and type COPY A:TODO.EXE C:\DOS (use any PATH
subdirectory--\DOS is just an example).

You may specify a name for your "to do list" file by including the name
when invoking the program (e.g. TODO myfile). If you just type TODO the
program will use a file called TODO.2DU. If you have used a previous
version of TODO Version 2.0 or later, your file 'TODO.2DO' needs to be
converted to the new 3.X file format. THIS PROGRAM WILL NOT ACCEPT DATA
FILES FROM VERSIONS BEFORE 3.0. A file called TODOCV.ARC contains a
conversion program. If you are still using a version of TODO prior to
Version 2.0 you will have to re-enter your data. Also, be sure to delete
TODO.COM from your disk since DOS always runs a COM file before an EXE

Now, from the C: prompt type TODO. The first time the program runs it will
ask if you wish to create a new data file. The default data file is always
created in the current subdirectory. You should be sure that the
subdirectory you are working in is included in your PATH command. That way
the program will be able to find the data file even if you invoke it from
another subdirectory. If you specify a file name the program will create it
in the current subdirectory unless you specify a subdirectory. Thereafter
just type TODO (or TODO filename) to see your list. When the list is
showing you may hit the F1 key for help.

It is recommended that you add TODO as the last line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file. Three files other than the EXE file are important to the operation of
the program: TODO.CFG where your color selections and other options are
stored, TODO.2DN where notes are stored and TODO.DUN where completed items
are stored. You may have several data files; if you invoke TODO with the
file name MYFILE for example, the program will automatically create files
called MYFILE.2DU and MYFILE.2DN.

2 Option Settings

Be sure to check out the options menu-available by hitting the O key. Note
that you can change the title of the columns for WHO and TIME. Some people
use these for department codes, categories, etc. The TIME column is just a
simple character (string) field which will take anything you type (10:00,
noon, 3PM, etc.). Thus if you need to sort by TIME you will need to use
military time (24 hour clock) with leading zeroes (09:00). With this
version you can choose between MM/DD or DD/MM styel date formats.

3 Printer Settings

Setting printer strings:
This can be confusing in many programs; there are many ways to do this.
For this program you actually type the KEYS which correspond to printer
control codes. When the printer setup window appears, if you want to send
an ESCAPE followed by an E, you hit the escape key followed by the E key.
You don't have to use numbers such as \027 (or worse, hex numbers). If you
want to send a Control-O just type it (that's 015 for you diehards). Alas,
if your printer manual only gives you the numbers (027 or 015) you'll have
to consult a manual on BASIC or somebody else's printer manual.

In order to avoid having the time display and the instuctions at the bottom
of the screen "bleed" through if you switch to another program use the T
key to turn off time display. If you hit the ALT key in this mode you will
see the second line of instructions at the bottom but the main instruction
line will not reappear until you hit a key.

This is not "free" software. (Not much worthwhile is free.) It is not "in
the public domain". It is copyrighted and owned by me. The idea here is
that you can try the software at no risk. Decide if you like it enough to
continue using it. If you do, send me $29 to register your copy. If you
need to send a purchase order and get an invoice, the total fee is $35. I
will send you instructions on how to remove the notices and reminders that
appear. If you have registered a previous version you are entitled to this
update for free if you obtain it from a bulletin board, Compuserve, etc.
Registered users can always obtain the latest copy from me by sending $8.

Send your $29 check (or $35 Purchase Order) to:

Art Hill
936 S. Kensington Ave.
La Grange, IL 60525

Please note Version number 3.99A. Also I'd like to know where you obtained
the program. If you are a Compuserve, GENIE or Prodigy subscriber please
give me your ID so that I can send your instructions electronically.
Please print your name legibly so that the instructions can be sent
directly to you even if you are registering in a company name.

What if you don't register? I have included what many people have written
to say is a good gentle reminder to register. When you run the program I
add an item to your TODO list to remind you to register. (You can delete
the item immediately so it doesn't muck up your list.) Hopefully this will
"nag" you without irritating you. When the program is finished, I display
my commercial. If you register I tell you how to stop the reminders;
that's all there is to it.
