<-> PassWoid 0.69 Alpha (11/27/89) <->
This is a simple password protection that can be run from the DOS prompt
(rather useless in that respect) or from a batch file. It requires about
5k of memory (it is NOT RAM-resident) and 1 floppy drive [at least].
This package should contain the following files: PW.EXE (Passwoid 0.69A),
PW.DOC (This documentation file), and TOOCOME.DOC (A peek at what's to come).
The CRC-32 for PW.EXE (Passwoid v 0.69alpha) is 0846367750 Dec. 32728C06 Hex
Syntax: [,]'s are optional parameters, everything else is required.
To use the program, type:
PW [nocase] [good return string] [incorrect return string]
Where is the password to be checked for and [nocase]
is the optional parameter to ignore case. [good return string] is the
string that PW will return if the password entered is correct. [incorrect
return string] is the string returned if the password attempt is failed.
PW hackersarescum nocase Yay! Not_Quite!
would tell Passwoid to check for the password 'hackersarescum' and ignore
PW hackersarescum Yay! Not_Quite!
would also check for the same password, but the password would HAVE to be
entered in lowercase or it would be considered wrong. The nocase option does
not affect ascii characters other han alphabetic ones.
If the user enters the password correctly a message indicating that is issued
and PW terminates (with an errorlevel 7, useful in batch files). If the
password is entered incorrectly the program indicates this and issues an
interrupt hex 19 causing a warm system reboot.
