What to do first

At the DOS prompt, type SCRDOC. You will see instructions
telling you how to create the documentation file.


If you don't get the expected result, perhaps there is an error.
Look for the following error messages:

Out of memory.

This means you must remove some resident software from
memory. Try rebooting, perhaps from the DOS distribution
diskette, and then try deSCRNCHing again. You need at least
140K available to run SCRDOC.

Bad copy.

This means your copy of SCRDOC.COM has an error in it. You
should obtain a new copy.

Error writing.

Perhaps there is a problem with the disk drive or media
you're writing to. Narrow down the problem by using other
programs (e.g. the DOS COPY command) to attempt to write to
the same disk.

Disk full.

You'll have to clear away some space, and then try
deSCRNCHing again. If you're using a floppy disk, be sure
it is formatted properly.
