NOW.EXE - (c) 1990 by Guang-Ien Cheng
A time/date utility with date reminders
===========================================================================
NOW is a simple command-line utility. With-out any parameters, NOW simply
displays the current time and date in a clear format. NOW also checks its
auxilary file, CALENDAR.NOW, for a reminder for today. If it finds one,
it will display it at this time. For example, a normal NOW output would
be:

9:40 pm
Tuesday, May 8, 1990.

If the message "Happy B-day!" was attached, the following would display:

9:40 pm
Tuesday, May 8, 1990.
Happy B-day!

To list the current messages in CALENDAR.NOW use the /L parameter. To enter
a message for a specific date use the /E parameter. You will be prompted
for a date and then for the message. To delete a specific message, use the
/D parameter and enter the date when prompted.

NOTES

1. NOW.EXE requires DOS 3.0 or higher.
2. If NOW.EXE cannot find CALENDAR in the same directory as itself, it will
build a new, blank one, a process which takes a few seconds.
3. Type NOW ? for brief instructions.
4. NOW.EXE is intended to be used in AUTOEXEC.BAT, so reminders will not be
forgotten.
