Contents of the README file


This file contains some utilites, most of them are filters. The files are
as follows:

CLEAN.COM
CHAIN.COM
FOLD80.COM
FOLD72.COM
FOLD48.COM
UNIXTOPC.COM
LOADHONK.EXE

LOADHONK is the only program that is not a filter. All others are filters,
similar to the DOS MORE, FIND, or SORT commands. A list of explanations
follows.

LOADHONK - Annoy your friends! (but take it off before they kill you!)
Simple terminate & stay resident (TSR) program! Very Small! Freeware! Do
not load into the High Memory Area. It will crash the system & you will
have to reboot. Trick - REName the program and put it to someone's
AUTOEXEC.BAT. Be sure to give some important sounding name. LoadHonk beeps
every eleven seconds. It pauses computer activity and beeps just to bug
you!

To Use LOADHONK:

Type LOADHONK.

(If you rename LOADHONK, use that name instead.)

UNIXTOPC - Don't you hate it when you download a file from the InterNet and
the lines don't have CR at the end. In other words they look like this:
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
BBBB...
And so on. This utility adds CR (carriage return) after each linefeed (LF).
VERY useful.

To Use UNIXTOPC:

Type UNIXTOPC < filename.old > filename.new

filename.old This is the file with only linefeed characters

filename.old This is the file that will have the CR & LF characters

You can also use this command:

TYPE filename.old |UNIXTOPC > filename.new

or,

TYPE filename.old |UNIXTOPC | MORE

this will NOT save a new file, but instead display it screen.

CLEAN - This command takes all characters that are less than ASCII 32 and
more than ASCII 126. It replaces them with spaces, but does not change the
CR - LF.

To Use CLEAN:

CLEAN < filename.old > filename.new

You can also use this command:

TYPE filename.old |CLEAN > filename.new

or,

TYPE filename.old |CLEAN | MORE

Be forewarned, this will NOT save a new file, but instead display it screen.

CHAIN - This command makes the file one line long, but a very long line. This
program is best used with FOLD80, FOLD72, or FOLD48.

To Use CHAIN:

Type:

CHAIN < filename.old > filename.new

You can also use this command:

TYPE filename.old |CHAIN > filename.new

or,

TYPE filename.old |CHAIN | MORE

The above line is usefull if you want to see what CHAIN does.

FOLD80 - This folds a line at 80 characters, but is smart enough not to break
in the middle of the word. FOLD72 and FOLD48 work the same way, but fold
at 72 and 48 characters, respectively.

To Use FOLD80, FOLD72, and FOLD48:

Type:

FOLD80 < filename.old > filename.new

or

FOLD72 < filename.old > filename.new

or

FOLD48 < filename.old > filename.new

You can also use this command:

TYPE filename.old |FOLD80 > filename.new

or

TYPE filename.old |FOLD72 > filename.new

or

TYPE filename.old |FOLD48 > filename.new

or,

TYPE filename.old |FOLD80 | MORE

or

TYPE filename.old |FOLD72 | MORE

or

TYPE filename.old |FOLD48 | MORE

The above line is usefull if you want to see what FOLD does.
