--- Introduction --------------------------
Have you ever wished that you could see both your config.sys and
autoexec.bat files at the same time on the same screen? Well now
you can, with EDCON PRO.
--- What it is ? --------------------------
EDCON PRO is a double editor that will show you, let you edit,
save back to the source, and even print the files. The editors
have full line insert, delete, page up, page down, and line scroll.
Each line can be a length of 128 characters and system will now
read up to 200 lines in both config and the autoexec files.
Options allow printing of both files. With the new added INI file,
the system can be configured to read the two files from anywhere on
the system. c:,a:,e:etc. You could even use it on other files, such
as your WIN.INI, SYSTEM.INI, OS/2 config, etc. As long as they fit
the 128 characters and 200 lines limit. These limits can be changed
under custom orders. EDCON PRO has a screen saver system, and
on line help.
--- Installation --------------------------
IBM-PC or compatible MS-DOS machine is all that is needed.
Dos 3 & up. The program is menu driven and easy to use
without referring to the documentation. All that is needed
is to place the files in the subdirectory you wish, edit the
EDCON.INI file and run EDCON.
--- License Terms --------------------------
This version of EDCON and associated files may be freely distributed
provided that the entire package is made available and only a reasonable
copying fee is charged. This version is fully functional and has no
opening screen or other annoying traits. It is labeled as UNREGISTERED.
Registration allows the individual to use the one copy any way they see
fit. Site license users may, of course, use as many copies as specified
in their license. If there is any question about multiple machines or
users, the "like-a-book" rule applies: It should be impossible for more
than the registered number of copies to be used simultaneously.
--- Registration --------------------------
Registration of EDCON PRO is $ 10.00. If you find that you can not
afford this price, and do need to use it, A gift to you from me.
The installation of the Registration Key is quite simple. Just press
and hold the shift key immediately after you start EDCON and a panel
will pop up and show you the registration info and provide a place to
put your name and the number. Remember, the Name and Number must be
exact as on the registration form received, and it is case sensitive.

--- Disclaimer ------------------------
I am not responsible for anything you claim this program does to
your computer, it is not guaranteed to do anything except take up
disk space! Bottom line - "You use at your own Risk". I do not
like that line anymore than you do, but some times you just have
to do what needs to be done. I have tested EDCON on a large variety
of MS-DOS machines and all works well, including an OS/2 box. If
you see anything out of the ordinary, drop a note in the mail or
call my BBS and leave me a note. I will resolve it.
Real bottom line here is - Thanks for trying
EDCON and I hope you can get some use of it.
