Contents of the ARCTV.DOC file
'ARCTV' is a small archive text-view utility. Will allow you to directly
list out text files in an archive without first extracting them. This version
includes full source code and is compatible with network filesharing. It is
based on the archive text-view function in ProDOOR. Run ARCTV without
parameters for a summary of command syntax.
This utility can be used as a CTTY-based DOOR in systems that can provide
one or more filespecs for arc viewing.

12-Dec-87 version 2.51
Eliminated special version of prounsq2.inc; added conditional
compiles to use common library. Fixed bug in 'squeeze' handler
that would cause the message 'invalid arc header' after viewing
20-Dec-87 version 2.6
Converted to Turbo Pascal 4.0. Reduced stack requirements by 32k.
Renumbered to 2.5 so numbers will always correspond to ProDoor versions.
Updated for ProDoor 2.52; added extract option.
Updated for ProDoor 2.6 beta 7. Split into two program files:
ARCTV.EXE is the text-view only version
ARCTVX.EXE is the view/extract version.
Added file buffering during archive view. Speeds things up
quite a bit on some systems.
