Floppy Disk Envelope Generator Version 1.2
Floppy Disk Envelope Generator prints a floppy disk
envelope cut-out. It is simple to use. From DOS type "EG"
(Without the quotation marks). It will then ask you to enter
the correct date and disk drive (valid disk drives are A: and
B:). It then lets you decide whether or not you want to print
the directory of the disk on the envelope. If you wish to
preview the directory enter "p". Lastly, you have the option
of writing a name for your disk.
By cutting out the envelope and taping down the tabs,
the contents of your disk is easily accessible. If you don't
feel like taking the time to find your tape, the cutout also
makes a nice envelope insert. You can cut out the top part of
the printout or simply fold it.
Floppy Disk Envelope Generator is distributed under the
name EG.ARC. It contains the following archived files:
EG.EXE - The Program
EG12.DOC - The documentation that you are reading
ORDER.EG - Printable order form for ordering a
registered copy of EG.
The primary means of distribution is through Bulletin
Boards. However, I would be glad to send you a sample
nonregistered copy of this program for the price of a disk and
postage & handling or by sending it over from my own modem.

User Supported Software
This program is shareware but it is not free. I have
worked hard to make it good but it is too expensive to
advertise in any other way. Therefore I am sending the program
out so that people can test it out to see if they like it. Give
it a whirl. If find it a useful as I do please send $15
(including Postage and Handling) to:
2922 Legation St. N.W.
Washington D.C. 20015
This will earn you (1) a registered copy of Floppy Disk
Envelope Generator (which means that you can run it more than 5
times) (2) the option of putting your name or your company's
name at the bottom of the envelope (3) a statement that you are
an official user of EG, and (4) my appreciation (which means I
might help you out someday).
Businesses must have separate registered copies for each
computer that envelopes will be made on.
To print the order form on your printer type "copy
order.eg lpt1" (without the quotation marks).
If you have a problem with this program it doesn't mean
that it will never work. It might be a very simple problem. For
example, a man had his printer set for mode lpt1:132 instead of
80 (which is the default). If you send me a description of your
problem and a sample (if possible) I will do the best I can to
fix the problem.
