Disclaimer / License Agreement


What is shareware?

Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying
it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are
expected to register. Individual programs differ on details - some
request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial
period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to
continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the
copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as
stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like
commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both
cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is in
the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to
copy and distribute the software, either to all or to a specific group.
For example, some authors require written permission before a commercial
disk vendor may copy their Shareware.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should
find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's
commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs
easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is
low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee
- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.


Disclaimer - Agreement

By using Infodex and/or any of its components, users indicate their
acceptance of the following terms:

"Infodex is supplied as is. The author disclaims all warranties,
expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of
merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. Neither STSI, The Bertha
BBS, or any STSI employees will be held responsible for any damages,
direct or consequential, which may result from the use of Infodex and/or

any of its components."

"Information in this documentation is subject to change without notice and
does not represent a commitment on the part of STSI. STSI may make
improvements and/or changes in this documentation or in the products
and/or programs described in this documentation at any time."

Infodex is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge to the user
for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends, but please do
not give it away altered or as part of another system. The essence of
"user-supported" software is to provide personal computer users with
quality software without high prices, and yet to provide incentive for
programmers to continue to develop new products. If you find this program
useful and find that you are using Infodex and continue to use Infodex
after a reasonable trial period, you must make a registration payment of
$34.95 (+S&H) to Stevenson Technical Services, Inc. (STSI). This
registration fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at any
one time. You must treat this software just like a book. An example is
that this software may be used by any number of people and may be freely
moved from one computer location to another, so long as there is no
possibility of it being used at one location while it's being used at
another. Just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the
same time, Infodex should not be used on two different computers at the
same time.

Commercial users of Infodex must register and pay for their copies of
Infodex within 30 days of first use or their license is withdrawn. Site-
License arrangements may be made by contacting STSI at (218) 924-2050.

Anyone distributing Infodex for any kind of remuneration must first
contact STSI for authorization. This authorization will be automatically
granted to distributors recognized by the (ASP) as adhering to its
guidelines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin
offering Infodex immediately. (However STSI must still be advised so that
the distributor can be kept up-to-date with the latest version of
Infodex.)

You are encouraged to pass a copy of Infodex along to your friends for
evaluation. Please encourage them to register their copy if they find
that they can use it. All registered users will receive a copy of the
latest version of the Infodex, along with a printed manual and bonus
disks.




ASP Notice:


STSI is a member of the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP
wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you. If you are
unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with an ASP member by
contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP
Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member,
but does not provide technical support for members' products. Please
write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskegon, MI 49442-9427
USA, FAX 616-788-2765 or send a CompuServe message via CompuServe Mail to
ASP Ombudsman 70007,3536.

Installing Infodex


The files needed to properly install Infodex are listed in the file
PACKING.LST. Log to the drive where you are installing Infodex from, and
type "INSTALL". The installation program will ask you where you are
installing Infodex from (usually, the current directory), and the location
where the program files should be stored. (The default destination
directory is C:\INFODEX.) Infodex can be installed on any drive in your
system, including network drives.

To execute Infodex, type "INFODEX" from the \INFODEX sub-directory, and
press [ENTER]. Infodex's desktop will display an information dialog box
containing version and copyright information, followed by the main menu.




Creating A New Database


To create a new database, select "Create A New Database" from the Infodex
main menu. A dialog box will pop up allowing you to enter the new name
and description for the database you will create. Once you have entered
a filename, enter a description in the "Description" field. This text
will be shown as the title on the top of the editing screen. To create
the database, select Ok. If an existing database exists by that same
name, Infodex will warn you before overwriting it.

When you have selected Ok, Infodex will display the layout screen. This
is where you will create your database, and place the fields where you
want them. To create a new field, you can do one of three things... 1)
Click on the New button with your mouse, 2) Press Alt-N, or 3) Press the
Insert key. Infodex will display a dialog box that looks similar to this:


[] Edit Field

Field Name....: New Field

Field Type....: (*) Character
( ) Number
( ) Memo

Decimal Places: 2

Prompt Row,Col: 2, 2

Field Row,Col.: 2,18

Field Length..: 25

Display Length: 25

Ok Cancel




Page 6




Field Name The Field Name contains the text that will appear beside
the field you are creating. This field can be blank, but
it is most often used to display descriptive information
about what is contained in the actual field, such as
Name, Address, City, etc.

Field Type Infodex currently supports three types of fields.

Character Fields can contain up to 254 characters of
alpha-numeric text. Number fields can contain only
numeric characters. A decimal point is allowed, but
there must be a value between 1 and 4 in the decimal
places field for a decimal point to be displayed. Memo
fields can contain alpha-numeric text with a maximum size
of 65,530 characters. A typical size for memo fields is
1,000 - 2,000 characters. Memo fields are helpful for
entering information that does not fit very well in any
other field.

Decimal Places If you are creating a number field, you can change the
number of decimal places that should be displayed.
Currently, Infodex limits the maximum number of decimal
places to 4.

Prompt Row,Col These fields contain the row and column positions of the
Field Name entered above. Infodex automatically enters a
default column and row position, to make this task
easier. These values can be changed directly, or you can
manually move the field once it has been placed on the
layout screen.

Field Row,Col These fields contain the row and column positions of the
actual field. As with the prompt, Infodex automatically
enters a default column and row position, to make this
task easier. The positioning of the field can also be
changed once it has been placed on the layout screen.

Field Length This field should contain the maximum length of any text
that will be entered. If you create a Name field, and
only specify a field length of 20 characters, you will
not be able to enter names longer than 20 characters.
(If you need to lengthen a field after the database has
been created, Infodex will allow you to do this. So if
you aren't sure about the field length, take your best
guess, and change it later if you need to.)

Display Length This value is similar to the Field Length value, but it
contains the length of the field as it is displayed on
the screen. For example, if you want a name field to be
100 characters long, you would enter 100 in the Field
Length field. But since you can't display a control that
long on your screen, you would enter a smaller value in
the Display Length field, such as 30 or 40. If the
display length is too long to fit on the layout screen,
Infodex will warn you and make you change it before
continuing.



Page 7



Once you select Ok, Infodex adds the field to the layout screen. If you
don't like the position of the field, you can move it around by using the
arrow keys. If you only want to move the field (for example, to place it
closer to the name), click on the Field button, or press Alt-F. The
prompt on the bottom of the screen will change to "Move Field" to indicate
that you are only moving the field. To move the name, click on the Name
button, or press Alt-A. The prompt on the bottom of the screen will
change to "Move Name" to indicate that you are only moving the name. To
move both the name and field at the same time, click on the Both button,
or press Alt-B, and the prompt will change to "Move Field and Name". If
you want to delete an existing field, highlight that field with the cursor
and press the Delete key. After confirming that you want to delete the
field, Infodex will remove it from the screen.

Repeat this process for every field you want to create. When you are
finished, select Done (Alt-D). Infodex will save the layout information,
and will create a database based on the name you provided.

When Infodex creates a new database, several supporting files are created.
If the database filename is "TEST"(.DAT), the files that Infodex would
create are as follows:

TEST.DAT -> This file contains the actual data for the database. This
file is crucial to the integrity of the database.
TEST.DBH -> This "header file" contains information about the structure
of the database file. This file is also crucial to the
database integrity, ensuring that Infodex can read the data
that has been previously written.
TEST.IX -> This file contains the indexes, or searching information to
allow Infodex to quickly locate a needed record. If this
file should become lost or corrupt, Infodex will
automatically regenerate it for you.
TEST.INF -> This file contains information about the layout of each
field in the database. It also contains the last size and
position of the Notes field and the Browser screen. This
allows you to define a special size and position for the
Notes field and Browser screen in each database you create.
In the event that this file is deleted or becomes corrupt,
Infodex will attempt to regenerate it for you. However,
you will probably lose your existing layout (that is, your
placement of the fields), and will need to put them back
where you originally placed them.
TEST.DIA -> This file manages multiple access to the database in
multitasking and network environments.


After creating these files, Infodex displays the main editing screen.
This is where you add, edit, and delete information from the database,
browse through records, and search for data in specific fields.

Editing Commands



New - When this button is pushed, Infodex goes into "edit mode", and
allows you to enter a new record. When Infodex is in edit
mode, you cannot move between records, delete records, call up
the browser, or search for data. Once you have finished
adding the new record, click on "Save" to save it into the
database, or select "Cancel" to exit from edit Mode. If you
have made any changes, Infodex will issue a prompt to check
whether or not you want to save any changes before leaving.

Edit - When this button is pushed, Infodex goes into "edit mode", and
allows you to modify the current record. When Infodex is in
edit mode, you cannot move between records, delete records,
call up the browser, or search for data. Once you have
finished modifying the current record, click on "Save" to save
the modified record into the database, or select "Cancel" to


Page 9



exit from Edit Mode. If you have made any changes, Infodex
will issue a prompt to make sure that you don't want to save
any changes before leaving.

Delete - When the Delete button is selected, Infodex issues a prompt to
confirm that you want to delete the current record from the
database. When you choose "Yes" at the prompt, the record is
deleted, and Infodex resets the record display to the first
record in the database.

Browse - When this button is pushed, Infodex displays a browsing screen
that contains all of the records in the database. To scroll
through the browser, use the Up Arrow, Down Arrow, PgUp, and
PgDn keys, or the mouse to scroll through all of the records.
Pressing a key such as "N" will move the highlight bar to the
beginning of the records beginning with the letter "N".
Pressing Escape will erase the browser and redisplay the
editing screen. Pressing ENTER on the highlighted record will
erase the browser and cause Infodex to display the selected
record on the editing screen for viewing, editing, or
deleting.

Search - When the Search button is selected, Infodex displays a Search
options screen where you can type the string to search for,
and select the field you want to search through. When Ok is
selected, the search process begins. Once Infodex completes
the search, it will either display a message box indicating
that no records were found, or it will display the browser
screen with a complete list of all records that were found
matching the Search String. If you leave the Search String
field blank, all records will be displayed in the browser.
The search that is performed is not case sensitive, so
entering the Search String in upper-case letters or lower-case
letters will produce the same result.

Other - The Other button gives users access to advanced options. The
advanced options include printing all of the database records,
and exporting the records into a delimited text file.

Export - Infodex allows you to export all records in the database into
a delimited text file. When you select the Export button,
Infodex displays a dialog box allowing you to modify the text
and field delimiters for the file, and specify what the name
of the output file should be.

Print - To print all records within the database, select the Print
button. A Print Records dialog box will be displayed,
allowing you to select which port the output should be sent
to, or if the records should be printed directly to a file.
If a File is selected for output, the Filename field must be
filled in to specify the name of the file to use. See the
Future Enhancements section of this documentation for planned
printing features in future versions of Infodex.

Up - Pushing the Up Arrow button will cause the record previous to
the current record to be displayed.

Down - Pushing the Down Arrow button will cause the record subsequent


Page 10



to the current record to be displayed.

Up - Pushing the Up Triangle button will cause the first record in
Triangle the database to be displayed.

Down - Pushing the Down Triangle button will cause the last record in
Triangle the database to be displayed.

Save - The Save button is only displayed when Infodex is in edit
(F10) mode, and when it is selected, Infodex will attempt to save
the current record into the database.

Cancel - The Cancel button is only displayed when Infodex is in edit
mode, and when it is selected, Infodex will Cancel the editing
process, exit from edit mode, and redisplay the current
record.

F1 - By pressing the F1 function key, users can have access to the
Infodex help system. The F1 key should be available at any
time within Infodex, and will offer helpful information and
instructions.

F3 - When the F3 function key is pressed (only available when
Infodex is NOT in edit mode), Infodex will allow you to edit
the database description associated with the current database.
After editing the description and selecting Ok, Infodex will
redraw the editing screen with the new database description
displayed on the top of the editing screen.

Tab or - When tab or ENTER is pressed during the editing process, it
ENTER will normally advance the cursor to the next field. However,
if the current field is a memo field, pressing the ENTER key
will cause the memo window to be displayed. To exit from
editing a memo, press Escape. Changes to memo fields are
saved when the entire record is saved.





Import A Database


Description: Infodex has support to import a delimited text file
or a file created with Infodex version 1.x. In
order to properly import a delimited text file, it
cannot have more than 36 fields. This is because
Infodex must create a field on the layout screen for
every field in the database, and it is difficult to
fit more than 36 fields on the layout screen.

Delimited File:

File To Import: Enter the path and filename of the delimited text
file to import into Infodex.


Text Delimiter: This character should be the character used to


Page 11



mark the beginning and end of text fields in the
delimited text file. This is typically a quote
(") character.

Field Delimiter: This character should be the character used to
mark (or delimit) the end of field in the
delimited text file.

Database File Name: Enter the name of the database file to create when
Infodex imports the delimited text file. You
cannot import records into an existing database!
You must create a new database when importing
records.

Ok: When you select Ok, Infodex will check if the
database file name already exists. If it does, a
warning message will appear, asking whether or not
you want to overwrite the existing database.
After that, Infodex will begin the importing
process. First, the delimited file must be
scanned to detect the number of fields in the
database. Next, the records are added to the
database file. As each of these processes occur,
status windows will display the progress. When
the importing process is complete, the database
file is opened and displayed on the editing
screen.

Cancel: To cancel the importing process, select the Cancel
button, and you will return to the main menu.





File Dialog Boxes



Description: The file dialog box screens allow users to open or delete
an existing database.

Note: When opening a database, make sure that the file was
originally created with Infodex.

Filename: This text field allows users to manually enter the name of
a file. If you enter a filename without an extension when
opening or deleting a file, Infodex appends a .DAT
extension and searches for a file in the current
directory. If the file exists, it is automatically
selected when you press ENTER. If the file does not
exist, Infodex will either advance the cursor to the Files
list box for manual selection, or issue an error message,
depending on the existing conditions.

Files: The Files list box provides users with a way to search the
current drive and directory for files with the selected
*.DAT file filter. Pressing the SPACE BAR will highlight


Page 12



a file from the list, and pressing ENTER on a highlighted
file will instruct Infodex to attempt to open or delete it
(depending on the current routine).

Directories: The Directories list box displays a list of directories on
the currently selected drive, and a list of available
drives. The current directory can be changed by pressing
ENTER on the desired directory, or clicking on it with the
mouse. When a new directory is selected, the "Files" list
box is updated to display all files matching the file
filter in the new directory.

Directory: This non-editable field contains the current drive and
path. Use this field as a quick-reference to see where
Infodex is looking for files.

Ok: The Ok button can be selected when a file has been
highlighted from the Files list box. Infodex will then
attempt to open or delete the selected file.

Cancel: The Cancel button can be selected to cancel the current
routine and return to the previous screen.





Configuration Options



Description: The options on this screen determine the default behavior
of Infodex on your computer system.

Optimization: This option is used to specify whether Infodex should
optimize database management for Data Integrity or Speed.
If Optimize For Data Integrity is chosen, access to
certain routines may be impacted by a slight reduction in
speed. If Optimize For Speed is chosen, Infodex will
attempt to optimize access to routines without a
reduction in speed. To ensure data integrity, Optimize
For Data Integrity is recommended.

Network Type: If you will not be using Infodex on a network or in a
multi-user environment, select "None" for this option.
If you are using Infodex on a Novell network, select the
"Novell NetWare" option, and if you are using any other
type of network, select the "MS-Net Compatible" option.

Startup File: If a valid filename is entered in this field, Infodex
will attempt to load the specified file each time it is
executed. The only exception to this rule is if a
different filename is entered on the command line when
Infodex is executed. If Infodex detects that a filename
has been entered as a parameter on the command line, it
will open that filename instead of the one specified in
the Startup File field.



Page 13



Refresh Delay: This number specifies the number of seconds that Infodex
will use as an update interval when displaying the
browser screen. If this value is set to 5, Infodex will
update the browser screen every 5 seconds with any
changes that have made from other workstations working on
the same database file.

Explode Delay: This number specifies the number of seconds used as an
"Explode Delay" for dialog boxes within Infodex. To
eliminate all exploding effects, set the number in this
field to 0.

Editing Options: The Use Field Delimiters setting allows you to specify
whether or not fields on the editing screen are delimited
by brackets or not. This may be helpful for you to
determine the placement and size of fields on the layout
screen.

Ok: When Ok is selected, Infodex saves the options on this
screen to the file INFODEX.INI.

Cancel: Selecting Cancel leaves all options on this screen in the
state they were set to when this screen was initially
displayed.




Register Infodex


Description: Once you register Infodex and pay the requested
$34.95 fee to STSI for registering, you will receive
a registration name and number. Enter your name and
number in the fields shown on this screen, and
Infodex will be registered to you. You will no
longer see "nag screens" or "reminders" pressuring
you to register. If your name and number are
entered accurately, Infodex will display a thank-you
message. Otherwise, Infodex will warn you that the
registration number you entered was not valid.

Registration Name: The Registration Name text field allows users to
enter their personal name or the name of their
company or organization.

Registration Number: The Registration Number text field allows users to
enter the registration number they received from
STSI upon registering Infodex. For information on
how to register, please see the "Registration"
section near the top of this documentation file.

Network Users: This field contains the numbers of network users for
Infodex. To receive a registration number that
provides support for network users, see the file
REGISTER.DOC. If you are registering a single-user
version of Infodex, enter 0 in this field.

Title Bar Display: Registered users can customize the title on the
background display of Infodex by changing the text
in this field. If this is an unregistered version
of Infodex, the title bar cannot be changed, and
will always display "UNREGISTERED Version".

Ok: Selecting Ok instructs Infodex to save this
configuration information to the file INFODEX.INI.

Cancel: Selecting Cancel instructs Infodex to ignore any
changes that have been made to the previous
settings, and return to the main menu.




Future Enhancements


The following is a list of planned features and enhancements for future
versions of Infodex. Most features will be implemented as soon as
possible.

* Advanced printing support, including custom layouts, and printing of
entire notes fields.

* Scan through all records for a user-specified string. This string will
not have to be located at the beginning of a search field. It can be
located at any position in any field of the database.

* Import databases in dBase format.

* Color customization.

* Drag and drop mouse support (for the layout screen).

* Customization of which fields are displayed on the browser screen.




Cautions!


As with any program that maintains large amounts of data, there is the
possibility for data loss. Infodex contains special precautions, such as
having the ability to rebuild the database index if it should become
corrupt. However, regular data backups are strongly recommended. Hard
drives can fail, files can become corrupt, and data loss can occur. Your
best protection is a regular (verified) backup!
