============
INTRODUCTION
============
Zip Code Book is a zip code (and city, state, area code) lookup
program for Windows. Enter a zip code to find the corresponding
city, state and area code. You can also find a zip code by entering
a city name and two-digit state abbreviation. Zip Code Book
supports copy and paste to and from other Windows applications
(like word processors, spreadsheet programs and databases).
Contains a database of over 70,000 zip codes and city/place names.

Zip Code Book comes with the most recent database of all the city
and place names and corresponding zip codes recognized by the US
Postal service. We use information from the official Post Office
database of zip codes as well as information from other sources.
We update the database in February, May, August and November of
each year.

Annual subscriptions (four quarterly database updates) are
available from Ultimate Software for $20 per year. If you only
want to update your database once a year, you can order any
individual update for $10.

=================
FINDING ZIP CODES
=================
To find a city name from a zip code, simply enter the city name in
the city field and the state abbreviation in the state field
(example CA=California). If the city was found in the database,
the first zip code matching the city name will appear instantly.

If you are unsure of a city's spelling, you can type in just a part
of the city name. For example, to find a zip code for Schenectady,
New York, enter "S" in the city field and "NY" in the state field.
Since there are many cities in New York that start with an "S" that
are alphabetically before Schenectady, another city's information
appears. However, if you click on the "More" button, you can
scroll down through the list which appears until you find
Schenectady. Since Schenectady is a large enough city to have
multiple zip codes, there are a few different zip codes for the
city. Choose one of them to bring up zip code and area code
information for Schenectady.

==================
FINDING CITY NAMES
==================
To find a city name, enter a zip code in the zip code field and
press Enter. If you have entered a valid zip code, the city name,
state abbreviation and area code will instantly appear. To look up
additional cities, continue to enter zip codes in the zip code
field. You can enter as little as the first three digits of the
zip code. The first zip code in the database which begins with the
three digits you entered will appear. Use the "More" button to
search through up to 100 zip codes which follow the database record
currently displayed. Click on any record you wish to display.

==================
ADDITIONAL RECORDS
==================
Any time that Zip Code Book completes a search for a zip code (or
city name) a button with the caption "More" will appear on the Zip
Code Book window. Clicking on the "More" button allows you to
search additional records.

If your search was on zip code (you entered a zip code and hit enter),
the list that pops up after you click the "More" button will be of
consecutive zip codes from the zip code you entered down through the
next 100 zip codes. You can click on any of the records to display
the full information for that record including the city, state, zip
code and area code.

If your search was on city name (you hit enter when the cursor was in
the city or state field), you can click on the "More" button to
view additional city names in alphabetical order. You can click on
any record in the list to bring up full information for that record
including the city, state, zip code and area code. The "More"
button is very useful, especially since there is often more than
one zip code for a city and more than one city (or place name)
with the same zip code.

=================
WINDOWS CLIPBOARD
=================
Zip Code Book supports the Windows clipboard. This means that you
can copy a zip code or city name to the clipboard from within
another program and paste it into one of the Zip Code Book fields.
More importantly you can click on the "Write to Clipboard" icon
(pictured above) to save Zip Code Book information to the Windows
clipboard. You can then paste this information into your other
application.

EXAMPLE
For this example we will use the "Write" program that comes with
Windows, however, you can follow along using any program which
supports the Windows clipboard. In Write type in the zip code for
your city. Now highlight the text by holding down the left mouse
button and dragging the mouse pointer over the five digits of your
zip code. The zip code should now be highlighted. Now hold the
"Ctrl" key and press "C" while holding down the "Ctrl" button.
This will copy your zip code to the clipboard. Now go into Zip
Code Book. Click on the zip code field (the text box to the right
of the words "Zip Code." Now hold "Ctrl" and press "V." Your zip
code should now be in the zip code field. Press Enter and your
city, state and area code should instantly appear.



To copy information from Zip Code Book to your application, click
on the "Write to Clipboard" icon. This brings up a list of options
including "Do not copy to clipboard", your city name, state, zip,
area code, city address line, city address line with a comma after
the city name, and city/state/zip with a return after each field.
Choose this last option by clicking on it. Now go back to your
other application (Write or whatever application you are using for
this example). Click somewhere on the window to bring up a cursor
on your application's window. Now hold down "Ctrl" and press "V."
This should copy your city name, state and zip code to the screen.
Each should be on a different line.

============

WINDOWS LANGUAGE TUTORS
The Ultimate Language Tutor for Windows is a vocabulary learning
system currently available in four languages. This program offers
a variety of drills and quizzes that help you learn, master, and

automatically flashed on-screen at a user-set rate.

The Ultimate Language Tutor for Windows also allows the user to
add a chosen list of vocabulary in different language libraries.

language course and using the Ultimate Language Tutor as a
supplement to that course. The student can add a distinct new
library that matches the vocabulary for the chapter being studied.
The built-in quiz score tracker is particularly useful for teachers
wishing to make this program available to their classes. Quizzes
are tracked by student. Each student's profile shows scores and a

manages a top-ten list of the students with highest overall quiz
scores.

HOT BUTTON
HOT Button for Windows is one of the most useful programs you will
ever use. The idea behind HOT Button was to create a collection of
frequently needed utilities and programs and organize them in a way
that would make it easy for you to get to them quickly. Once you
begin using HOT Button, you will want to open it up and move it to
a corner of your Windows screen each time you go into Windows.

When opened, HOT Button takes up very little screen space (just a
little bigger than an icon). Leaving HOT Button opened in this way
also takes up a minimum of your Windows resources. When you
realize how useful HOT Button is, you will always want to have it
handy. The small HOT Button opening window has four tiny buttons.

The first button is a file viewer. Click on it to view graphic
files (icons, bitmaps, .GIF, .PCX, .WMF, .TIF), spreadsheet files
(Lotus 1-2-3, Excel, Quattro), Database files (dBASE, FoxPro,
Access, Paradox, Works), word processor documents (Word, Word
Perfect, AMI Pro, WinWord, Works, QA Write), text files, binary
files, and even a listing of the files contained in a compressed
file (.ZIP, .LZH). You can view files individually or as part of
a self-running slideshow. You can view a whole directory of icons
at one time. You can view "thumbnails" of a whole directory of
bitmap images and then enlarge a bitmap to full size with a single
mouse click. The file viewer alone would make HOT Button a very
useful utility for any Windows user, but there's a whole lot more!


Click the second button to bring up the HOT Button Disk Utilities.
This is a collection of frequently needed file and disk utilities.
Use the HOT Button Disk Utilities to copy, rename, delete, edit,
search for, and view information about files on your hard and
floppy drives. There is also a pop-up diskette format utility
which will format either high or low-density diskettes in your
floppy drives.

Click on the third button to bring up the HOT Button WAV and MIDI
Sound File Player. If you have a sound card, you will find the WAV
player very useful. You can load and play a single sound file or
automatically play all the .WAV or .MID files in an entire
directory. The WAV player also has a repeat function, so you can
automatically play a sound (or a whole directory of sound files)
over and over.

Click on the fourth button to bring up the HOT Button Audio CD
Player. This is a programmable CD system. The CD player can
automatically detect an inserted CD that you have previously
programmed. You can save the names of tracks and a play list of up
to 50 songs. Your play list may include any or all of the tracks
on the CD in any sequence you choose.

One other useful feature of HOT Button is the built-in digital
clock. When you open HOT Button, the tiny opening window includes
a digital clock which updates itself every minute. If you move the
mouse pointer over the HOT Button window, the display toggles
between the time and date. Even if you minimize the HOT Button
window (which you probably don't need to do since it is so small)
it continues to update and display the current time.

o HOT Button $25

also receive the next 3 quarterly updates when available. Updates
are currently issued in May, August, November and February. The
database used by the Zip Code Book is highly compressed.
Registered users will also receive a .DBF version of the database
which can be used by any database program which can read (or
import) standard .DBF files.
