FREEWARE NOTICE
---------------

LZEXE-WC is FREEWARE software. Both the Programs and the
documentation are Copyrighted. I am, hereby, granting users
a limited license to use my product for noncommercial
purposes. Distributors may distribute my product only in its
unaltered and original program state, and for a fee of no
more than three ($3.00) dollars. This Product may be
distributed as a separate compress file, along with other
LZEXE related programs or even LZEXE, itself.

THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT LZEXE.EXE WHICH IS NOT
INCLUDED. Furthermore, LZEXE and the other executable program
choices must be located in your path or this product will not
work.

ANY tampering with my Copyright Notice will render LZEXE-WC
inoperable.

WARNING
-------

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT WITHOUT FIRST BACKING UP
YOUR HARD DISK! A copy of all original programs
must be available so that you may replace those few
programs which the LZEXE program may render
nonfunctional. It is a certainty that a few
programs converted by LZEXE will need to be
replaced. Check the LZEXE Documentation (not
included with this product) for further details.

It is, further, recommended that your backup copy
be in an executable format (ie, not created with
DOS's BACKUP).



WHY USE THIS PRODUCT?
---------------------
In case you do not know, LZEXE is a file compression utility
that compresses COM and EXE program files. The programs
maintain their separate identity. In addition, they remain
executable. You can realize a substantial space savings of
somewhere between 30 and 60 percent of the original program
size.

LZEXE-WC ver 1.1F April 29, 1990
-------------------------------------------------------------

The intelligence that created LZEXE is truly mind boggling.
It does what appears to be the impossible. Yet, it also
contains some idiosyncrasies that make it rather difficult to
use:

(1)No Wild Cards
(2)The Newly created files have the wrong Date and
Time Stamps.
(3)The old files are not deleted.

These idiosyncrasies of LZEXE make converting an entire Hard
Disk a very time consuming process. Here, is where LZEXE-WC
comes to the rescue!

LZEXE-WC will allow you to use Wild Cards. You can convert
an entire directory in one shot. With the /D option you can
have the original files automatically deleted, too. The /S
option allows you to skip programs smaller than your byte
size specification. And, the /F option allows you to skip
over files listed in a text file. These programs work much
like XCOPY with the /M parameter. You can convert your hard
disk several times without any problems. The programs
already converted will simply be rejected from further
processing.

LZEXE-WC works by feeding files to a program of your choice.
You can select ALL, LZESHELL, LZEXE, UPACKEXE, or COMTOEXE.
Selecting ALL causes LZEXE-WC to execute UPACKEXE, COMTOEXE,
and LZEXE in sequence.

Remember that LZEXE and LZESHELL will prompt you with
opposite questions. LZEXE will ask you if you want to stop
(in French, of course). You should respond with N for NON
(ie, skip) or with O for OUI (ie, YES). On the other hand,
LZESHELL will ask if you want to continue. Respond with Y to
continue and N to skip. In addition, LZESHELL will respond
immediately to your key press (ie, no mistakes allowed!!!)
while LZEXE will wait for you to press [Enter] (ie, you can
change your mind).

Using ALL will result in longer processing times but with
fewer operator prompts while using LZESHELL will require a
lot more operator attention. In addition, LZESHELL does not
convert .COM files. So if you plan to use LZESHELL you
should run COMTOEXE, first.

The approach advocated by my product is to convert all your
programs by computer control while skipping those that do not
meet your selection criteria. Then as problems are
discovered (ie, the discovery that an executed program does
not work properly), the respective programs are replaced as
needed. The author feels that this concept makes more sense
than to convert and test individually each converted
program, especially when you are talking about several

hundred PD programs and over a MEG of disk space savings!!!.



SAFEGUARDS
----------
Using LZEXE is a relatively dangerous process that that
should be undertaken carefully by all users of LZEXE-WC. You
should study the LZEXE documentation before proceeding. For
your safety, LZEXE-WC contains several built in safeguards
that makes the use of Wild Cards with LZEXE practical.


(1)File Size

Files can be skipped over on the basis of size.
For example, specifying /S:20480 will skip all
files less than 20K in size. Generally speaking,
small files might take up more space after being
converted than the original copy (ie, those less
than 2K).


(2)Skip List

You can skip all potential problem File Names by
listing them specifically and correctly in a text
file. For example, specifying /F:SKIP will cause
all file names contained in SKIP to be ignored by
LZEXE-WC.

Intelligent use of SKIP Files can make converting
an entire disk relatively safe and automatic.
Before, doing any processing you should build a
skip list by surveying your hard disk. Suggested
guidelines for including files in your skip list
are as follows:

(a)Any program that uses Overlays.

(b)The Main Program of Each commercial
program costing over $200. These
programs usually include exotic
protection schemes in their main program.

(c)Any program which installs options by
changing the program itself such as Turbo
Pascal. If you are happy with the current
setup than you might want to convert them,
too. There exclusion is more a matter of
convenience, rather than any safety factor.

(d)Any program that is too important to
take chances with.

LZEXE-WC ver 1.1F April 29, 1990
-------------------------------------------------------------

(e)Any known list of problem programs.

I have provided for skipping a maximum of 500 files
names. That should be more than enough; since the
attached list only contains a handful of programs
to be avoided.

(3)One Directory At a Time

My product forces you to process one directory of
files at a time. Generally, the only programs that
do not covert successfully are those super big
commercial programs. These big programs use
Overlays and should be therefore avoided. You can
avoid problems simply by skipping over directories
containing those big commercial programs. Also,
those commercial programs which use exotic copy
protection schemes, generally are not converted
successfully. However, you will find in most cases
that this problem will only apply to the main
program. For example, while Lotus 1-2-3 can not be
converted successfully; both View and PGraph
convert with no problems. You can skip over these
problem programs by including their exact file name
in your SKIP file.

Most PD programs are not complicated enough to
cause any conversion problems. So, if you have
directories containing 100's of PD programs, then
you will realize a big time shavings using
wildcards with relatively little risk. Just
imagine how long it would take to convert just 100
utilities; one at a time!


(4)Inadequate Disk Space


LZEXE-WC will refuse to continue if there is not
enough free disk space, equal to the target file
size plus 5K.


(5)I/O Error Trapping

This product will not bomb out on you because all
unexpected I/O errors are trapped with my own exit
routine. This means that the program will properly
exit and in most cases will provide an error
message in plain ENGLISH. For example, defective
Hard Disks will be caught here. (However, I can
not say the same for the LZEXE programs. These
programs operate out of my control.)

LZEXE-WC ver 1.1F April 29, 1990
-------------------------------------------------------------

(6)Command.Com

My product will not convert COMMAND.COM.


(7)Default Log File

You can see exactly which files where processed,
etc via the automatic Log file recorded by default
in your root directory. It is appended, so you can
see the results of processing an entire Hard disk,
even if you take several weeks to complete the job.



COMMAND LINE SUMMARY
--------------------

Usage: LZEXE-WC FileSpec PgmName /E [options]

Example: LZEXE-WC * ALL /E /D /F:SKIP


FILE SPECIFICATIONS:

The usual DOS specifications hold with
the exception that the Extension is forced to
either .EXE or .COM depending on which PgmName you
specify. In addition you may use just a * which
equates to either or both *.COM and *.EXE.


PROGRAM NAME:

My product will feed program files to UPACKEXE,
COMTOEXE, LZEXE, or LZESHELL. If you specify ALL
then LZEXE-WC program will first run UPACKEXE, then
COMTOEXE, and then finally LZEXE. The output of
these programs may be redirected at the command
line with > or >> (Note, however, that the current
version of LZEXE can not be redirected.)


/E

Causes LZEXE-WC to execute. This is a safeguard to
prevent accidental execution.


OPTIONS:

/D Deletes the original programs. The default
keeps the old files. The program will only delete
where a file was converted. You must use this

option if you have extremely limited disk space.

/F:s Skips all file names included in the
textfile called s.

The required format of the skip file is as follows:

(a)text file


(b)first 12 digits are reserved for the
file name. The file name consists only
of the name and extension (No drives or
paths). No spaces are allowed within a
file name. The period is required.

(c)comments are allowed provided at least
one digit of space separates the file
name from the comment.

(d)no leading spaces are allowed.

(e)the file MUST be SORTed in ascending
order.

This can be achieved by using the DOS
SORT utility as follows:

SORT < textin > SKIP

(f)only one file name per line.

(g)blank lines are tolerated.

(h)maximum of 500 files names per file.

(i)You may use as many different SKIP
files as you want, but you can only use
one SKIP file at a time.

/L:s Where s is name of Log File.

Use CON to see the Log output on your screen. Use
NUL to specify no log. A default Log is appended
to the root directory under the name LZEXE-WC.LOG.
To change this default setting you must use this
parameter.

/S:n Processes only those files over n bytes in
size. The default size is 2048. If you want to
convert all files then you must specify /S:1.

LZEXE-WC * LZESHELL /E /D

Converts those EXE files over 2K in size in the
current directory indirectly via LZESHELL. The old
converted programs are deleted.

LZEXE-WC * LZEXE /E /S:20480

Converts only those EXE files in the current
directory that are bigger than 20K.

LZEXE-WC * COMTOEXE /E /D >LOG

Converts those COM files over 2K in size in the
current directory and produces a text LOG file of
the COMTOEXE output. The old converted programs
are deleted.

SWEEP LZEXE-WC * ALL /D /E /F:C:\SKIP

If you have carefully developed a SKIP file then
you can use this command to convert your entire
Hard Disk with relative safety; using PC's
Magazines SWEEP command (not included with this
product).



GRAPHICS
--------
You maybe wondering why there is no graphics in LZEXE-WC.
Believe it or not, the lack of graphics does not prevent a
good program from becoming a commercial success. One good
example of a successful commercial program containing no
graphics is Right Writer version 2.1A by RightSoft, Inc.
Right Writer is being advertised and sold nationally. It is
a success by anyone's standards (and certainly mine), even
without graphics!

All of my preliminary versions of ShareWare and RegisterWare
products do not contain any graphics. Good Graphics require

essential that you have at least one backup copy on diskette
of all your programs before converting a directory with this
product.

The entire risk as to the quality and performance of my
