- ABOUT DELTA 2.4 -
----------------------------------------
Delta allows you to save information about your disk and then compare the
differences that may have occured over time. A typical application would
involve Windows installation software, where you would save your disk's
information before and after the installation, and then compare and check for
differences. Delta also allows you to save information contained in text and
Windows initialization files and then check for differences. Typical files
would include: AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, WIN.INI, SYSTEM.INI, etc. Other uses
would include simply monitoring changes to your drive or network over time.

----------------------------------------
- INSTALLATION -
----------------------------------------
1. Copy BWCC.DLL to your Windows system directory if you do not
already have a copy or it is out of date
(ie: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\BWCC.DLL)
2. Copy COMMDLG.DLL to your Windows system directory if you do
not already have a copy or it is out of date
(ie: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\COMMDLG.DLL)
3. Create a DELTA directory (ie.: C:\DELTA)
4. Copy DELTA.INI to your DELTA directory (ie.: C:\DELTA\DELTA.INI)
5. Copy DELTA.EXE to your DELTA directory (ie.: C:\DELTA\DELTA.EXE)
6. Copy DELTA.HLP to your DELTA directory (ie.: C:\DELTA\DELTA.HLP)
7. Copy LZMAV.DLL to your DELTA directory (ie.: C:\DELTA\LZMAV.DLL)

NOTE: DELTA.EXE and DELTA.HLP can be located anywhere on
your drive. The only requirement is to have both of
these files in the same directory.

NOTE: You may elect to copy LZMAV.DLL to your Windows' System directory.
(ie.: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LZMAV.DLL)

NOTE: I recommend invoking DELTA.EXE and clicking on Help
to view the "How to customize Delta through the DELTA.INI file"
before you actually use Delta.

- VERSION HISTORY -
----------------------------------------
2.4 05/07/93 Corrected directory to default to where 'ReportFile' and
'SaveAsFile' pointed to in the Delta.Ini file.
Allowed Delta to be ran from the Program Manager, loading the
*.Dlt file into the old profile.
Added the [Profile List] section to Delta.Ini. This allows the
user to specify directories to be profiled in Delta.Ini and is
a precursor to the -a command line option outlined below.
Added the 'Compress' keyword to Delta.Ini. This allows the user
to select the default save mode (normal or compressed). This
also is a precursor to the -a command line option outlined below.
Added -a option to the command line. This allows the user to
automatically perform a profile and save the result.
Added the ability have a one line comment for each profile.
