LIMIT OF LIABILITY

SHEZ is distributed as-is. The author disclaims all warranties,
expressed or implied. The author will assume no liability for damages
either from the direct use of this product or as a consequence of the
use of this product.

SHEZ is a shell program to make viewing and working with archive files
user friendly. It provides the user with a friendly, consistent
interface for all supported compressed file operations.
ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS NEEDED


You will need, at a minimum, at least one file compression program,
and optionally a file browser program. Vern Buerg's LIST program is
an excellent, full featured file browser program, and has been
thoroughly tested with SHEZ. You will also need one of the file
compression programs supported by SHEZ. These include PKZIP, PAK,
| ARJ, LZH or LHA, PKPAK, ZOO, SQZ, UC2, and RAR. When installing these
required programs, be sure to install them into a directory that is in
your path statement. If you are installing the PKZIP package be sure
to install the following three programs: PKZIP.EXE, PKUNZIP.EXE, and
ZIP2EXE.EXE.


All of the programs mentioned in this section, with the exception of
Central Point Software Virus Scan, can be found on most Bulletin
Boards, and on Cserve. They are all available on the Directory
Assistance BBS that is mentioned at the end of this document.

PKZIP, PKUNZIP by Phil Katz for ZIP files.
PKUNPAK, PKPAK by Phil Katz for ARC files.
LHARC, LHA by Haruyasu Yoshizaki for LZH files.
ZOO by Rahul Dhesi for ZOO files.
PAK by NoGate Consulting for PAK files.
ARJ by Robert Jung for ARJ files.

If you want to use the virus scan option of SHEZ you will also need
the virus scan program by McAfee Associates called SCAN.EXE. The SCAN
program from McAfee Associates has been extensively tested with SHEZ
and is highly recommended. This program can be found on most major
BBS's or you may obtain it by calling the McAfee BBS. You must obtain
version 39 or greater of this program in order for SHEZ to use it
correctly.

QUICK START

Installing SHEZ is a very straight forward procedure, simply copy or
extract from the compressed file, all the .EXE, .COM, and the SHEZ.HLP
files into a directory that is defined in your DOS PATH. Optionally
you may create a new directory to hold the SHEZ files. If you choose
this option you must either add the new directory name to your DOS
PATH, or ALWAYS start SHEZ from the new directory.

After installing the files run the SHEZ configuration program. At the
DOS prompt type in SHEZCFG and press the enter key. The configuration
program is menu driven with full help screen available for each
option.

THE SHEZCFG PROGRAM MUST BE USED TO CREATE AN EXTERNAL CONFIGURATION
FILE. SHEZ WILL NOT RUN WITHOUT A CONFIGURATION FILE!!!!!

To start-up SHEZ simply enter "SHEZ [d:\path\filespec]". You may
specify wild cards in the filespec. If you use wild cards in the
filespec SHEZ will present you with a scrollable list of files that it
found matching the filespec. SHEZ recognizes the special
filename.fileext of $.$. If you specify a filespec of $.$ SHEZ will
list only the files having an extension of .ARC, .ZIP, .LZH, .ARJ,
| .ZOO, .SQZ, RAR, and .UC2 or the files having extension matching the
extensions that where set using the configuration program. SHEZ will
also recognize just the $ file extension along with a DOS wildcard
filename. For example if you start SHEZ by entering SHEZ C:\UTY\P*.$
SHEZ will display a list of files that have a filename beginning with
the letter P and that have a file extension of
| .ARC,.ZIP,.LZH,.ZOO,.PAK,.ARJ.SQZ.RAR,UC2, or what ever you set the
extensions to using the config. program.


You may also start SHEZ and specify a sub-directory name of the
directory you are currently in. For example, if you are currently in
the C:\UTILITY directory and you want to work on the files in the
C:\UTILITY\PGMS directory start SHEZ by entering the following: SHEZ
PGMS\

Also included in the file list will be any directories that SHEZ
found. The directory names will be enclosed in greater than and less
than symbols. I.E. . You can position the highlight bar on a
directory name and press the enter key to view the files and
directories that are contained in that directory. To move up one
level in the directory tree highlight the directory entry that appears
as <..>. As you change directories the full disk:\pathname will be
displayed on the main screen. In addition the disk:\path that will
receive extracted files is also displayed on the main screen. You can
than choose the file you wish to work on by moving the highlight bar
with the cursor keys and pressing the enter key. SHEZ will then
present you with a screen showing the contents of the archive file.

To perform a function, simply position the highlight bar and press the
key(s) that corresponds to the function you want to perform on that
member. Pressing the F1 key will open a window giving you context
sensitive help.

SHEZ also has a built-in menuing system. To activate the menu system
press the forward slash key. A menu bar will appear at the top of the
screen. Using the left and right cursor keys you may select major menu


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -7-

item. Press the enter key to view the choices under the menu item.
Using the up and down cursor keys you may choose an action item and
then press the enter key to perform that item. Pressing the ESC key
will take you back one level. Keep pressing the ESC key to exit the
| menu system. The menu system can also be navigated using the
| highlighted "HOT KEYS". The hot keys will appear in reverse video
| colors. The top menu bar will have the hot key highlighted. The drop
| down menus hot keys will also be highlighted and will appear on the
| left side of the drop down menu box. Below is an example of the menu
| display. On the top menu bar the hot keys appear as capital letters
| or numbers.

There are two functions that can only be activated via the menuing
system. Printing a file contained in an archive file, and setting the
default compressing factor. There are no hot keys associated with
these functions.

SHEZ will optionally swap 90% of its code out of memory when you:

1) Shell to DOS
2) Execute the edit function.
3) Run a program contained in a compressed file.

This allows you to run most programs from within SHEZ without running
out of memory. The default for SHEZ is not to use this swapping
function. However this can be changed via the configuration program.
The swapping function will swap as much of SHEZ as possible out of DOS
memory and into either EMS (3.2 or 4.0), XMS memory, if available, or
to the currently active default disk.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE RUNNING A SYSTEM WITHOUT A HARD DISK OR
WITHOUT EMS or XMS MEMORY DO NOT ACTIVATE THIS OPTION.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -8-

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

The command line format when starting SHEZ is as follows:

SHEZ [filespec] [/Exxx] [/PLAY=xxx] [/LCD] [/Cfilespec] [/4]

Please note all command line options are optional. You may enter a
filespec pattern for SHEZ to use when searching for a file. All legal
DOS wild card specifies are allowed, as are Drive and Directory
information.
In addition relative pathnames may also be entered on the command
line.
For example:
SHEZ C:\UTY\*.ZIP
This will startup SHEZ and will only list the files on the C:
drive in the UTY directory that have a file extension of .ZIP.

SHEZ ..\DATA\*.*
This will startup SHEZ and will list the files one directory back
from the \DATA directory.


The /E parameter tells SHEZ to set its default extract location to the
Drive and directory specified immediately following the /E parameter.
DO NOT ENTER A SPACE AFTER THE /E parameter.
I.E. /EC:\WORK This specifies an extract location of the E: drive
and the WORK directory.
If you start SHEZ with this parameter it will over-ride all other
default extract location. Once SHEZ is started you may alter the
extract location by using the ALT-P command.

The /LCD parameter tells SHEZ you are running SHEZ on an LCD display
monitor. SHEZ will adjust its screen color set to make the display
more readable on LCD displays.

The /PLAY= parameter tells SHEZ to load the previously saved macro
file and playback the recorded keystrokes immediately upon startup. If
the macro file does not exist, SHEZ will ignore the request.

Example: SHEZ C:\UTY\*.ZIP /PLAY=C:\DATA\MY.MAC

This will start SHEZ looking in the C:\UTY directory for all files
with an extension of .ZIP and will playback the recorded keystrokes
contained in the file C:\DATA\MY.MAC.

For more information on keystroke recording and playback see the
section KEYSTROKE RECORDING/PLAYBACK FACILITY on page 42 later in this
document.

The /C parameter allows you to specify the location of the SHEZ
configuration file on the command line. The filespec immediately
following the /c will be used as the configuration file. This will
over-ride the SHEZCFG environment variable if it has been specified.

The /4 parameter allows you to activate the 4DOS description display
via the command line.

USING THE MOUSE WITH VERN BUERG'S LIST PROGRAM.

I have had numerous questions on how to allow the mouse to function
when viewing a file via Vern's list program. In order to allow the
mouse to function within list you must "CLONE" the mouse option into
the list program. You must be using LIST PLUS version 7.2 in order to
use the mouse. To clone the mouse option change to the directory that
contains the LIST.COM program, then start the LIST program from the
DOS prompt and include the mouse command line option /M. I.E. LIST
/M. When the first screen appears press ALT-C to modify LIST.COM to
always startup with the mouse option. If you need further information
on cloning the list program please see the documentation included with
LIST.


INTERNAL QUICK-VIEWER

Shez also contains it's own internal file browser called QUICKVIEW.
QUICKVIEW has full mouse support and will allow you to view any size
file using a minimum of memory. While it is not substitute for a full
featured browsing program such as Vern Buerg's LIST program, it is
very fast and allows you to view any file in ASCII or HEX modes. If
you don't have an external browsing program QUICKVIEW will allow you
to use SHEZ as it was intended.


EDITING KEY DEFINITIONS


When you are prompted to enter information the following editing keys
can be used:

Home: Go to beginning of input line.
End: Go to end of input line.
Backspace: Go back one character and delete.
CTL-END: Erase to end of line.

If the highlighted entry is a directory, SHEZ will remove the
directory only if there are no files or sub-directories under
this directory.

Sort the file list - F9
This option will sort the file list that appears on the left side
of the screen. You will be asked if you want the list sorted by
filename, file extension, file date, file size, tagged status,
or unsorted. When sorting by filename any directory found will
also be sorted. When sorting by extension, date, or size the
directories will be sorted at the top of the list. When sorting
by date the file time is also included in the sort.
A dialog box will also appear asking you if you wish to sort in
Ascending or Descending order.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -18-

Convert highlighted file - ALT-V
This option will convert the highlighted file to another archive
method. A list will appear showing the available compression
alternatives that SHEZ has been configured for. Using the mouse
or cursor keys highlight the compression method you wish to
convert to, then press the enter key. You may also press the ESC
key to cancel the conversion process. The converted file will
be placed into the same directory as the original file, and the
original file will remain intact. When a compressed file also
has directory information stored along with the filenames, and
the file is being converted to a compression method that supports
pathnames, SHEZ will retain the directory information. In
addition, if the compressed files being converted has volume
label information stored, SHEZ will attempt to retain the volume
label information. (PLEASE NOTE: THE VOLUME LABEL PROCESSING WILL
ONLY WORK IF YOU ARE CONVERTING FROM A ZIP OR ARJ FILE FORMAT TO
A ZIP OR ARJ FILE FORMAT. ALSO THE VOLUME LABEL PROCESSING WILL
NOT FUNCTION WHEN RUNNING SHEZ IN THE DOS BOX UNDER OS/2.)

Convert all tagged files - CTL-V
This option will convert all tagged files to another archive
method. A list will appear showing the available compression
alternatives that SHEZ has been configured for. Using the mouse
or cursor keys highlight the compression method you wish to
convert to, then press the enter key. You may also press the ESC
key to cancel the conversion process. The converted file will
be placed into the same directory as the original file, and the
original file will remain intact.

Convert highlighted file to a SFX file - F8
This option will convert the highlighted compressed file into a
Self extracting file.
(Currently only files in the ZIP,LZH, and PAK formats may be
converted)

If you are converting a ZIP file that was created using version
1.1 of PKZIP, SHEZ will first attempt to create a MINI Self
extracting file. If that fails than a normal Self extracting file
will be created. See the PKZIP documentation for more on MINI
self extracting files.

NOTES ON CREATING SFX FILES

To convert a ZIP file to self extracting file the program,
ZIP2EXE.EXE, must be in the current directory or in a directory that
is defined in your PATH.

When a PAK file is converted the PAK file is replaced by the self
extracting file. For example: If tell SHEZ to convert a file named
TEST.PAK in the directory C:\TEST the TEST.PAK file will be deleted
from the C:\TEST directory and will be replaced by the file TEST.EXE.
This is not a function of SHEZ it is a function of the PAK compression
program.

When an LZH file is converted to a self extracting file the LHARC
program will created either a .COM file or a .EXE file, depending on
the size of the LZH file.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -19-

Convert Tagged files to SFX files - SFT-F8
This option will convert all tagged compressed files into Self
extracting files. See the F8 option above for additional
information on creating SFX files.
Write out configuration information - ALT-W
This option will write out a file named SHEZ.CFG. This file will

statement.

Copy highlighted file CTL-F2
This option allows you to copy the highlighted file. When
prompted for
the location to copy to you may enter the target directory
name along
with an optional filename and extension. If the filename and
extension
are not supplied SHEZ will use the original filename and
extension.
You may also use the * wildcard character for either the
filename
and/or the extension. If you use the * character SHEZ will
use the
original filename and/or extension when copying the file.
I.E. From: = C:\UTILITY\ANY.ZIP
To: = C:\WORK\NEW.*

This will create a file named NEW.ZIP in the \WORK directory.

The new file will have the original file's time and date
stamp.

Move highlighted file CTL-F3
This option allows you to move the highlighted file. When
prompted for the location to move to you may enter the target

SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -40-

VOLUME LABEL SUPPORT


Shez now supports adding and extracting volume label information
to/form compressed files. Volume label processing is only supported
for ZIP and ARJ type compressed files.

ADDING VOLUME LABELS WHEN CREATING NEW COMPRESSED FILES:

When creating a new ZIP or ARJ file via the F7 key, you will be asked
if you wish to store volume label information. If you respond Y, you
will then be asked to enter the Drive Letter of the drive to obtain
the volume label information from. Enter the drive letter (A-Z).
Please note: these prompts will only appear if you are creating a ZIP
or ARJ compressed file.

ADDING VOLUME LABELS TO AN EXISTING ZIP OR ARJ FILE:

To add volume label information to a pre-existing ZIP or ARJ file,
first open the compressed file by moving the highlight bar to the
appropriate file. Then press the enter key. This will open the
compressed file. Then press the $ key (SHIFT 4). You will be asked to
enter the drive letter to obtain the volume label information from.
Enter the drive letter (A-Z). The volume label from the specified
drive, if any exists, will be added to the compressed file.

EXTRACTING VOLUME LABEL INFORMATION:

To extract volume label information from an existing compressed file,
press the ALT-4 key to turn on automatic volume label processing.
When automatic volume label processing is active a $ will appear next
to the NAME field heading in the compressed file listing, or will
appear in the upper left corner of the DOS directory display window.

After activating automatic label processing, open the appropriate
compressed file as documented above. Set the extract location using
the ALT-P (extract path) command. Then extract any or all files from
the compressed file. During the extraction process the volume label
contained in the compressed file will be used to update the volume
label information on the extract drive.

PLEASE NOTE: ONCE YOU TURN AUTOMATIC VOLUME LABEL PROCESSING ON, IT
WILL REMAIN ON UNTIL YOU TURN IT OFF BY USING THE ALT-4 KEY AGAIN.
PLEASE USE THIS OPTION WITH CARE.

FLOATING EXTRACT LOCATION

SHEZ now supports a concept called the floating extract location. The
feature was added due to numerous user requests, and is an option
feature which is activated via the SHEZCFG program. Normally when
SHEZ is executed SHEZ sets the file extract location to the current
disk and directory. When you change to a different disk and/or
directory the extract location remains constant, pointing to the disk
and directory where SHEZ was started from. To change the extract
location you needed to use the ALT-P command (change extract
location).

The floating extract location basically allows the extract location to
float as you change to a new disk and/or directory. The extract


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -41-

location will float to what ever disk and directory you are currently
looking at. You can still dynamically specify an extract location by
using the ALT-P command, but when the ALT-P command is issued the
floating extract option will be de-activated from that point on. You
can reactivate the floating extract location logic by pressing the
ALT-P keys and entering a single asterick at the prompt.

To activate the floating extract location option, use the SHEZCFG
program and choose the ADDITIONAL SETUP INFORMATION menu item. When
the SHEZCFG program prompt you for a default extract location, enter a
single asterisk. The single asterisk tells SHEZ to activate its
floating extract logic.

Ultravision Support

SHEZ is Ultravision "aware". SHEZ will operate in an Ultravision
screen mode as long at the number of columns equals 80, and the number
of rows are between 25-50. If SHEZ determines that Ultravision is
installed, and it active in an non-supported screen mode, SHEZ will
deactivate Ultravision, and then will set the screen mode to one of
the supported modes. When SHEZ is exited, it will re-activate
Ultravision and put the screen mode back into the Ultravision mode is
was in before SHEZ was started.

FORMATTING FLOPPIES

SHEZ has the ability to format a floppy disk in either the A: or B:
drives. The following disk capacities are supported:
5 1/4 drives: 360KB and 1.2OK, 3 1/2 drives: 720KB and 1.44KB.
To format a disk press the ALT-O keys and a dialogue box will appear.
Enter the drive letter you wish to format, the capacity to format, and
if you wish each track verified during the format process. The verify
process will increase the time it takes to format a disk. If you are
using high quality disks you can opt to not verify to speed up the
format process. After the disk is formatted you will have the option
of adding a volume label to the disk. If no volume label is wanted
simply press the ENTER key without entering any information.

If your PC is an "XT" class machine, the format dialog box will ask
you the type of disk drive you are formatting in. Enter the code that
corresponds to the type of floppy drive you have installed.

Formatting error codes can be found in the Apendix of this manual.

KEYSTROKE RECORDING/PLAYBACK FACILITY

Shez now has the built in ability to record, playback, load, and save
key stokes. All of the keystroke recording abilities must be
activated from the keyboard. They can not be activated via the mouse
or the pull-down menus. A menu item for MACROS do appear on the menu
bar, but it is only used to access the help panel for keystroke
recording. If you are using a mouse the functions performed by the
mouse WILL NOT BE RECORDED. Only keystrokes entered directly from the
keyboard will be recorded. During keystroke recording, the ALT-Q (QUIT
SHEZ) key will be recorded, but will not be acted upon. This will
allow the user to record and save the ALT-Q key into the playback
macro.

The keyboard HOT-KEYS and there functions are explained below:

ALT-5 Macro record/playback PAUSE

The ALT-5 key is used to PAUSE the record/playback macro function
to allow the user to respond to a dialogue box prompt. When
recording a macro and a dialogue box opens, press the ALT-5 key,
then enter the response to the dialogue box. The macro recording
will resume as soon as the user presses the ESC, ENTER, or
Function keys.

When playing back a macro that has been recorded using the PAUSE
feature, the macro will PAUSE at the same location where the ALT-
5 key was originally pressed, allowing the user to enter data
into a dialogue box prompt.

For example: If you were recording a macro to search for a string
of characters in a group of files and you wanted to input a
different search string each time you executed the macro, you
would:

1) Start the macro recording by pressing the ALT-6 key.
2) Open up the compressed file you wish to search.
3) Tag the files you what to scan through.
4) Press the ALT-G key to pop-up the search data entry box, as

SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -43-

7) After the search is done press the ALT-6 key again to stop
macro recording.
8) Press the ALT-9 key to save your macro.

Now when you playback the macro, when the search data entry box
appears the macro will pause allowing you to alter the search
string before processing the rest of the recorded macro.

When the macro facility is in PAUSE mode, the ESC key, ENTER key,
or any FUNCTION key will resume the execution of the macro.

ALT-6 Start/Stop recording keystrokes.

Pressing the ALT-6 keys will toggle the keyboard recording mode.
When SHEZ is recording keystrokes the speaker will blip after
every keystroke is pressed. Pressing ALT-6 again will stop the
keystrokes from being recorded. Up to 500 keystrokes may be
recorded.

ALT-7 Immediately play back the recorded keystrokes.

Pressing the ALT-7 key will immediately playback your recorded
keystrokes.

CTL-Q Cancel recording/playback and flush the keystroke record
buffer.

Press the CTL-Q key either during a recording session, or during
a playback, will cancel the record/playback, and will clear the
keystroke buffer.

ALT-9 Save recorded keystrokes.

Pressing the ALT-9 key will pop-up a window allowing the user to
save the recorded keystrokes into a file for use at a later time.
You must stop recording by pressing the ALT-6 key before doing a
save. This key will also reset the record/playback function and
clear the keystroke buffer.

ALT-8 Load and Execute a saved keystroke file.

Pressing the ALT-8 key will pop-up a window allowing the user to
enter the name of a previously saved keystroke file. After the
file is loaded it will immediately be run.

SHEZ will also allow the user to load and execute a save keystroke
file at startup time. The command line parameter /play={filespec}
tells SHEZ to load the indicated filespec and playback the recorded
keystrokes.
PLEASE NOTE: SHEZ DOES NOT VERIFY THAT THE CONTENTS OF THIS FILE ARE
ACTUALLY RECORDED KEYSTROKES. SO BE CAREFUL WHEN SPECIFYING THE
FILESPEC!!

Examples:
SHEZ D:\DOWN\*.ZIP /PLAY=D:\AUTOSHEZ.MAC

Start SHEZ and display all the .ZIP files in the D:\DOWN directory,
and load and execute the recorded keystrokes contained in the
D:\AUTOSHEZ.MAC file.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -44-

SHEZ D:\SOURCE\CODE.ZIP /PLAY=D:\REFRESH.MAC

Start SHEZ and open the CODE.ZIP file contained in the D:\SOURCE
directory, and load and execute the recorded keystrokes contained in
the D:\REFRESH.MAC file.

The playback speed may also be sent to SLOW, MEDIUM, or FAST by using
the mAcro drop down menu item and selecting the playback speed
selection. The playback speed default is set to FAST.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -45-

CREATING NEW COMPRESSED FILES

SHEZ allows you to create new compressed files either from the
directory display window, using the F7 key, or from the compressed
file display window using the "C" command.

A window will appear asking you to enter the drive, directory, of
where to place the new file. You may press the F9 key to view the
directory structure in a tree format. After selecting the location of
the new file another aditios will appear asking you to specify the
name of the compressed file to be created. YOU MUST ENTER A FILE
| EXTENSION OF .ZIP,.ARC,.LZH,.ZOO,ARJ,SQZ,.PAK, RAR, or UC2 SO SHEZ
| KNOWS WHAT TYPE OF COMPRESSED FILE TO CREATE!!!!! Then you will asked
| if you want to add or move files into the new archive file. You will
| also be asked to enter an optional password. (If you enter a password
| all files added or moved to the archive file will be encrypted using
| the password. Do not forget the password you can not extract files
| from the file without the password and there is no way to determine
| the password if you forget it.) Please note the password prompt will
| only appear if the compression program used to create the new file
| support encryption.

A window will then be opened that will ask you to enter the filespecs
of the files you wish to add or move into the new archive file. This
filespec can include a disk, directory, and file specifications with
wild cards.

A third window will be opened allowing you to specify processing
options. The first option "Do you want to Tag files or Process as is"
allows you to tell SHEZ that you want to Tag files for processing
using the filespecs entered in the second window, or to simply pass
the entered filespecs to the compression program exactly as entered.
The second option "Do you want to save directory information" allows
you to tell SHEZ that you want directory information saved in the
compressed file. The third option "Do you want to recurse
directories" will tell the compression program to add/move all files
in the directory you specified plus all directories that exist beneath
it. A forth option will appear, "Store volume label into Compressed
file? (Y or N)->". This option will allow you to optionally store
volume label information into the compressed file. The default is not
to store label information. Respond Y if you wish to store the volume
label information. If you respond Y a fifth option will appear,
"Enter drive letter of Volume label to Save". When this prompt
appears enter the letter of the drive you wish to obtain the volume
label information from.

If you are creating an ARJ file, you will also be asked if you wish to
activate the multi-volume option of ARJ. This option allows you to
create a compressed file that will span multiple floppy disks. Thus
you can create a "backup" compressed file of an entire hard drive, or
very large directory.

If you indicated that you wanted to Tag files for processing a window
will pop-up on the left side of the screen showing all files that
matched the filespec you entered. Tag the files you wish to add or
move to the new compressed file by pressing the space bar. When you
are done tagging file press the return key and all tagged files will
be added or moved into the new archive file.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -46-

Please note that some of these options may not appear when you create
a compressed file. If the compression program you are using does not
support saving directory information the directory information prompts
will not appear.


CONVERTING FILES

Shez has the ability to convert one, or a group of tagged files, from
one format to another. First you must get the file or files you want
to convert to appear in the filelist window on the left side of the
screen. The easiest way to do this is to start up SHEZ and specify on
the command line either *.*, *.ZIP, or *.ARC. Then using the cursor
keys highlight the file you want to convert and then press the ALT-V
key to convert the file. You will then be asked, via a menu, what
archive format you want to convert to. Position the highlight bar to
the type of compressed file you wish to convert to and press the enter
key. You will also be asked if you want to delete the original file
after the conversion has been successfully completed. Respond Y or N.
The new file will be placed on the same disk and directory that the
original file was on.

During the conversion process, SHEZ will convert any nested compressed
files that is can identify. NOTE: nested compressed files that have
been stored with path names will not be converted. Self extracting
compressed files also will not be converted. SHEZ can only process
compressed nested files that are one level deep. Any nested
compressed files that are nested more than one level deep will remain
un-touched.

To convert numerous files start up SHEZ as above and use the cursor
keys to highlight the files you want to convert, then press the space
bar to TAG these files. After all files have been tagged press CTL-V
to convert all TAGGED files.

SHEZ will allow you to easily convert your old ZIP files into the new
ZIP imploded format. Simply tag the ZIP files you want to convert and
specify that you want to convert them to ZIP files. You will be asked
if you want to delete the old compressed files after the conversion
process. SHEZ is smart enough not to delete the old compressed file
if the have the same file extension as the new files. I.E. when you
convert a ZIP file to a ZIP file to take advantage of the new
compression format SHEZ will not delete the converted ZIP files even
if you told it to delete the old compressed files after converting
them.

After SHEZ converts a compressed file it will test the converted file
for correctness. If the converted file fails this test the converted
file will be deleted and the orginial compressed file will remain
intact.


SHEZ will also allow you to convert old LZH files to the new LHA 2.05
format using the same method of converting a file to itself.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -47-

SUPPORT FOR SELF EXTRACTING FILES

SHEZ also lets you view the contents of self extracting files. Files
that have been created by the following compression programs are
supported:

PKARC, PKPAK, PKZIP version .92 thru 2.04, LHARC version 1.12 thru
2.05, PAK version 1.6 thru 2.01, ARC5 and ARC6, ARJ version 2.10, LHA
2.12, SQZ 1.082 1.083.

When you display the contents of a self extracting file SHEZ will
attempt to identify which compression program was used to generate the
self extracting file. SHEZ will place the name of the compression
program it has identified as the creator, on the heading line right
next to the column titled NAME.

In addition to viewing the contents of a self extracting file you may
also extract individual files using SHEZ"s extract command. You may
also convert the self extracting file back to a normal compressed file
using the CTL-V command, or using the pull down menus.

You can not alter the contents of a self extracting file. I.E. add,
update, freshen, move, etc. The exception to this are self extracting
files built by PKZIP. These files you can treat like normal
compressed files. You can add, update, move, delete, freshen, etc.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -48-

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

SHEZ will recognize the following environment variables if they are
set:

BIOS This will force SHEZ to use BIOS for writing to the screen.

MONO This will force SHEZ to run in monochrome mode.

SHEZEX You can set this variable to the disk and path where
you want SHEZ to write extracted file to. You can reset
this default at any time by using the ALT-P command.

SHEZWORK This variable may be used to specify a working directory for
SHEZ to use instead of SHEZ building one of its own. This
directory must be for the exclusive of SHEZ, and must exist
prior to invoking SHEZ. WHEN SHEZ TERMINATES ALL FILES IN
THE DIRECTORY WILL BE DELETED, INCLUDING HIDDEN AND SYSTEM
FILES, BUT THE DIRECTORY WILL NOT BE DELETED. This option
was added to allow more flexibility when running SHEZ on a
LAN based system.

SHEZCMT This variable may be set to specify a default comment file
when adding/updating compressed file comment records to a
group of tagged files.

SHEZCFG This variable points to your SHEZ.CFG file. It is used to
carry forward, the SHEZ configuration options.

SHEZLOG This variable defines the LOG file that SHEZ will write to
when performing a virus check on tagged files from the DOS
directory window. If the file does not exist it will be
created. If the fill already exists new information will be
appended to the existing file.

SHEZXMS This variable de-activates SHEZ"s use of XMS memory. It
will over-ride the EMS/XMS usage parameters that were set
via the SHEZCFG program. Set this variable to any value to
de-active XMS memory usage.
Example: SHEZXMS=N Don"t use XMS memory.

SHEZEMS This variable de-activates SHEZ"s use of EMS memory. It
will over-ride the EMS/XMS usage parameters that were set
via the SHEZCFG program. Set this variable to any value to
de-active EMS memory usage.
Example: SHEZEMS=N Don"t use EMS memory.

SHEZUSE Using this variable you can over-ride the EMS/XMS memory
usage configuration that was setup via the SHEZCFG program.
Set this variable to the type of memory you wish SHEZ to
use. I.E. E for EMS memory, and/or X for XMS memory.

Examples:

SHEZUSE=EX Try EMS first then XMS
SHEZUSE=XE Try XMS first then EMS
SHEZUSE=E Only try EMS memory
SHEZUSE=X Only try XMS memroy
SHEZUSE=NN Don"t use XMS or EMS memory.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -49-


Examples:
SET BIOS=Y
SET MONO=Y
SET SHEZEX=D:\WORK
SET SHEZWORK=C:\SHEZXX\
SET SHEZCMT=C:\COMMENT.DAT
SET SHEZCFG=C:\DATA\SHEZ.CFG
SET SHEZLOG=C:\LOG\SHEZ.LOG

(This tells SHEZ to write extracted files onto the D disk in the \work
directory. You can change this at any time after executing SHEZ by
using the ALT-P command.)

The environment variables BIOS and MONO will override the BIOS and
MONO parameters that were entered via the configuration program.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -50-


SETTING ALTERNATE FILE VIEWERS

Shez has the capability to activate user specified alternate file
viewers when the CTL-ENTER key is pressed. The alternate file viewers
are specified
in an external file named SHEZ.INI. This file is a plain ASCII text
file that indicates to SHEZ what program should be run as the
alternate viewer, based on the highlighted file"s extension, when a
user pressing the CNTL-ENTER key.

The external file, SHEZ.INI, MUST be located in the current directory,
or in a directory that is specified in your path statement.

SEE APPENDIX 2 FOR A FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE ENTRIES ALLOWABLE IN THE
SHEZ.INI FILE.

SETTING USER DEFINED PRINTER

The SHEZ.INI file also allows you to define up to three user defined
printers. Included with each printer definition is it"s name as it
will appear on the menu, a required setup string, an optional endup
string, the number of character per line to print, and the number of
lines per page to print. The format of the required entries in the
SHEZ.INI file is shown in APPENDIX 2.

SETTING UP USED DEFINED MENU ENTRIES

The SHEZ.INI file also allows user defined menu items to be defined.
Up to twenty user defined programs and/or batch files can be specified
and they will appear on the uSer menu option when selected. See
APPENDIX 2 for the format of the entries required in the SHEZ.INI
file.

Any number of specific file viewers may be specified. When CTL-ENTER
is pressed, SHEZ first looks to see of a specific alternate file
viewer has been defined for viewing files with a file extension the
same of the highlighted file. If one was defined it is activated and
used. If a specific viewer has not been defined SHEZ then determines
if a "generic" alternate file viewer has been defined. If it has SHEZ
uses the "generic" viewer. If no alternate viewer has been defined
SHEZ than defaults to using the normal viewer as defined when the
SHEZCFG program was used to configure SHEZ.

PLEASE NOTE: WHEN SHEZ ACTIVATES ANY ALTERNATE FILE VIEWER IT ALWAYS
USES ITS PAGING LOGIC TO SWAP MOST OF ITS CODE OUT OF MEMORY TO GIVE
MORE ROOM TO THE ALTERNATE FILE VIEWER. THIS IS NOT A CONFIGURABLE
OPTION SO BE FOREWARNED!!!!!!!!!!!!


PERFORMING A VIRUS SCAN

SHEZ can scan for viruses in files that are contained in compressed
files. It can also scan for viruses in files that are contained in
embedded compressed files. SHEZ can check an unlimited number of
embedded compressed files, only limited by the amount of available
disk space assigned to the SHEZ work disk. When performing a virus
scan SHEZ will also check for self extracting compressed files and
will also check any files contained with the SFX files.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -51-

The first step performed during a virus check is to test the integrity
of the compressed file. If the integrity of the compressed file is
compromised, all other action on the compressed file will be bypassed,
and an error message will be issued.

There are two way to perform a virus scan. One is activated from the
DOS directory window, and the other is invoked after opening up a
compressed file.

To perform a virus scan from the DOS directory window, tag the files
you wish to check for viruses then press the ALT-Z or CTL-Z keys.
This will initiate the scanning process on all tagged files.

When virus checking files from the main DOS directory window, SHEZ
will create a virus check log file if the environment variable SHEZLOG
is defined. For more information on this variable set the section
entitled ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE on page 48. The log file will be
created if is does not exists, or will be appended to if it already
exists. The file will contain a listing of all the compressed files
that are being checked, plus a list of all files within the compressed
files that will be checked. If a self extracting file is encountered,
the log file will post an entry to the log file identifying the SFX
file, and what type SFX it is. Each time the log file is opened a
time and date stamp line will be written into the file before any
scanning occurs. The log file is NOT updated when doing a virus scan
from within an opened compressed file, it is only updated/created when
doing a scan from the DOS directory window.

BBS SYSOP NOTE:
When performing a bulk virus scan on a group of tagged files SHEZ
operates differently depending on in the SHEZLOG feature is
active. If the SHEZLOG feature is NOT active, any errors
encountered will cause an error message box to appear on the
screen, and all activity will stop until a key is pressed. If
the SHEZLOG feature is active, all error messages will be posted
to the file pointed to by the SHEZLOG environment variable. No
error messages will appear on the screen. Also when operating in
this mode, you may cancel the bulk virus scan, after initiating
it, by press the ESC key.

To perform a virus scan when viewing the contents of a compressed
file, simply press the ALT-Z keys. When doing a virus scan from
within an opened compressed file, SHEZ will also look for embedded
compressed files and will perform the scan on files contained within
them. The only exception to this is if you are looking inside an
embedded compressed file when you activate the scan, (ALT-Z). Under
this condition SHEZ will only check the files contained in the current
compressed file.

VIRUS CHECKING SELECTED FILES

If you wish to only check a few files contained in a compressed file
for viruses, tag the files you wish to check then press the ALT-Z key.
Only the tagged files will be checked instead of all in the compressed
file.

VIRUS SCANNING A DIRECTORY


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -52-

When in the DOS directory view screen you may also virus scan an
entire directory. Simply move the highlight bar to the directory you
wish to scan and press the ALT-S keys. SHEZ will use the user defined
virus scanning program to scan the files in the highlighted directory.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -53-

THE SGREP PROGRAM

The SGREP program, supplied with SHEZ, is used by SHEZ when the ALT-G
key is pressed, to scan member(s) of a compressed file for words or
phrases. It is included in the SHEZ package .

SGREP allows the user to specify two target strings in the search
argument. These two target strings are connected with an and, &, or
or, "|" separator. Thus allowing the user to search for two different
strings, or two strings or words contained on the same line. When the
specific string is found, the line in the file that contains the
string is written to the stdout DOS device, which is normally the
display. SGREP also has the capability to search the specified
file(s) for a regular expression. When performing a regular
expression search only one target may be specified. See REGULAR
EXPRESSIONS below on how to build a regular expression. The output
may be redirected to a file or a printer using the normal DOS
redirection symbols. The format of the SGREP command line is as
follows:

SGREP [options] "target(s)" {file(s)...|@file}

Where options are:

-f display **FILE-NAME for finds only
-l line numbers
-c case sensitive search
-x no logo
-e return errorlevel only
-p pause when screen is full
-v verbose display output
-r target is a regular expression

@file indicates an ascii file containing a list of file to process.
This list MUST include the complete file specification. I.E. The
disk, directory, filename, and file extension.

The target string(s) must be enclosed in quotes and special characters
can be specified as indicated below.

Hex byte sequences can be used to search for special non-displayable
characters. They are specified using a pair of hexadecimal bytes
preceded by a dollar sign,$.

EXAMPLES: $23 include is the string #include
$252.50 is the string %2.50
$23$24$25 is the string #$%

Two targets may be specified using the & and | characters to search
for two targets. If the & is used the lines must contain
both targets. If the | is used the lines must contain one of the
targets.

Example: "save|main" line must have save or main to be
listed.
"save&main" line must have save and main to be listed.

The format of the SGREP command line is presented here for
documentation purposes only since SHEZ automatically invokes the SGREP


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -54-

itself using a predefined set of options. SGREP may be run from the
DOS command prompt, or when using the ALT-Y command option of SHEZ.

REGULAR EXPRESSIONS

The regular_expression defines the pattern to search for. Upper- and
lower-case are always ignored. Blank lines never match. The
expression should be quoted to prevent file-name translation.

x An ordinary character (not mentioned below) matches that
character.
"\" The backslash quotes any character. "\$" matches a dollar-sign.
"^" A circumflex at the beginning of an expression matches the
beginning of a line.
"$" A dollar-sign at the end of an expression matches the end of a
line.
"." A period matches any character except "new-line".
"*" An expression followed by an asterisk matches zero or more
occurrances of that expression: "fo*" matches "f", "fo" "foo",
etc.
"+" An expression followed by a plus sign matches one or more
occurrances of that expression: "fo+" matches "fo", etc.
"-" An expression followed by a minus sign optionally matches the
expression.

"[]" A string enclosed in square brackets matches any character in
that string, but no others. If the first character in the string
is a circumflex, the expression matches any character except
"new-line" and the characters in the string. For example,
"[xyz]" matches "xx" and "zyx", while "[^xyz]" matches "abc"
but not "axb". A range of characters may be specified by two
characters separated by "-". Note that, [a-z] matches
alphabetics, while [z-a] never matches.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -55-

THE DUMPMAC PROGRAM


The DUMPMAC program is a small program designed to dump a saved macro
file to the DOS stdout device, normally the screen, and list the
recorded keystrokes in readable form. The command line format is:

DUMPMAC macro-file-name

The output of the program is self explanatory, and can be used to
debug or list unknown SHEZ macro files.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -56-

THE SHEZCFG PROGRAM

The SHEZCFG program is now fully menu driven and contains full online
help. As you modify information on each screen be sure to press the
F10 key to save each entry screen. After going through all the
configuration items be sure to select the "A" menu item to save your
configuration information.

THE SHEZCFG PROGRAM MUST BE RUN TO CREATE A CONFIGURATION FILE OR SHEZ
WILL NOT RUN!!

After creating a shez configuration file you may place the
configuration file into a directory that is specified in your PATH
statement.

Shez will find its configuration file as follows:

If the SHEZCFG environment variable is set SHEZ will use the
configuration file that has been specified by the environment
variable.
If the SHEZCFG environment varialble has not been set Shez will
search the directories in your PATH looking for a file named
SHEZ.CFG.

If a valid configuration file can not be located SHEZ will not
run!!!!!


CONFIGURING FOR VIRUS SCANNING

Under the program options, you will be asked if you wish to configure
SHEZ to scan .COM and .EXE files contained in compressed files for
viruses. If you respond Y, SHEZ will that ask you where the virus
checking program can be found. The programs that SHEZ supports are,
SCAN.EXE version 39 or greater, produced by McAfee Associates, and the
virus scanning program by Central Point. When prompted enter the
complete DISK:\DIRECTORY\FILENAME.EXT of where the virus scanning
program is located. It is advised that you place the SCAN program on
a write protected floppy disk to prevent it from being infected. You
may also optionally enter any additional command line options that the
virus scanning program requires. The optional parameters are entered
after the SHEZCFG prompts for them.

If you use the /report feature of McAfee"s virus scanning program, and
you use the SHEZLOG feature, as explained in the section titled
PREFORMING A VIRUS SCAN on page 50. PLEASE BE SURE TO specify two
different files names. If they are both pointing to the same file the
results will be unpredictable.

PLEASE NOTE: SHEZ WILL NOT SEARCH YOUR PATH FOR THE SCAN PROGRAM. IF
YOU DO NOT TELL IT EXACTLY WHERE TO FIND IT SHEZ WILL BE UNABLE TO
EXECUTE THE PROGRAM.


COMPATIBILITY ISSUES


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -57-

SHEZ achieves fast screen updates buy writing directly to video buffer
memory. If your machine is not 100% compatible you can force SHEZ to
use BIOS routines to update the screen. This is accomplished by
setting an environment variable BIOS equal to Y. I.E. SET BIOS=Y. Do
this before executing SHEZ.

For monochrome monitors a similar method is employed set the
environment variable MONO equal to Y. I.E. SET MONO=Y.

Some clone machines have a bug in the builtin BIOS routines that will
cause SHEZ to hang if you have exploding windows turned on. If you
experience a machine lock up, try reconfiguring SHEZ and turn the
exploding windows off.

DESQVIEW COMPATIBILITY

SHEZ is now DESQview aware. When setting SHEZ up under DESQview set
the parameter WRITE DIRECTLY TO SCREEN to NO, and USES OWN COLORS to
YES. SHEZ will also automatically release its timeslice to Desqview
when waiting for keyboard input.

WINDOWS AND OS/2 COMPATIBILITY

SHEZ has been tested under Windows 3.1 and OS/2 2.X. When running
under OS/2 or Windows enhanced mode, SHEZ will automatically release
its timeslice to the operating system when waiting for keyboard input.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -58-

SWAPPING SHEZ OUT OF MEMORY

This section briefly describes how SHEZ swaps itself out of memory to
make room for other programs. It also describes how the user can
configure SHEZ to perform its swapping function.

When you configure SHEZ to swap itself out of memory when running
other programs, SHEZ first looks to see if your system has EMS or XMS
memory installed. If there is EMS or XMS memory, and there is a
sufficient amount of EMS or XMS memory, SHEZ will copy most of its
code to EMS or XMS memory then free up enough memory to run another
program. After the other program has ended SHEZ then swaps itself
back into memory.

As a default SHEZ will first look to see of XMS memory is available.
If XMS is available and there is a sufficient amount of XMS memory
SHEZ will swap itself to XMS memory. If XMS memory is not available,
or there is not enough XMS memory available, SHEZ will them look for
EMS memory. If EMS memory is available, and there is sufficient EMS
memory, SHEZ will swap itself into EMS memory. If EMS memory is not
available, or there is not enough EMS memory available SHEZ will then
swap itself to disk.

If EMS or XMS memory is not available, or there is not enough EMS or
XMS memory, SHEZ will then use your DISK to swap itself out of memory.
It allocates disk space on the currently active drive and in the
current directory. When SHEZ swaps to disk it can conflict with some
compression operations.

To solve this problem the SHEZCFG program allows you to tell SHEZ, HOW
AND WHERE TO SWAP itself. The SHEZCFG program allows you to tell SHEZ
the DISK and DIRECTORY of where to build its swapper file if it needs
to swap to disk.

IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CREATE A SEPARATE AND UNIQUE
DIRECTORY ON YOUR HARD DRIVE FOR SHEZ TO USE WHEN SWAPPING TO DISK.
THIS DIRECTORY SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY FILES IN THE DIRECTORY. USING THE
SHEZCFG PROGRAM, TELL SHEZ THE LOCATION AND THE NAME OF THIS
DIRECTORY. THEN IF SHEZ NEEDS TO SWAP TO DISK IT WILL PLACE THE
SWAPPER FILE INTO THIS UNIQUE DIRECTORY, AND AFTER THE SWAP FUNCTION
IS COMPLETE IT WILL REMOVE THE SWAPPER FILE.

The SHEZCFG program also allows you to tell SHEZ to ignore EMS or XMS
memory, even if you have EMS and/or XMS memory installed, and always
swap to disk.

Since these option are new in release 6.1

PLEASE RUN THE SHEZCFG PROGRAM AND SET THE SWAPPING OPTIONS TO YOUR
PERSONAL NEEDS.

The swapping options can be found under the ADDITIONAL SETUP
INFORMATION menu item. You can tell SHEZ to use XMS, EMS, and disk
for swapping. If you specify all three XMS will be tested first, then
EMS, then disk.


USING EMS/XMS MEMORY IN SHEZ


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -59-

Beginning with release 7.0 of SHEZ, SHEZ can now use 65K of XMS or EMS
memory to reduce its DOS memory requirements. The XMS/EMS memory is
used for temporary storage areas, thus reducing the amount of DOS
memory SHEZ needs. The XMS/EMS memory will be released when you exit
SHEZ. If SHEZ uses EMS memory, it will also use a portion of the
allocated EMS memory as a file buffer area when copying files from the
DOS directory display. This will significantly speed up the copy
operations, so it is recommenced to use EMS memory if it is available.

EMS / XMS memory usage can be configured through the SHEZCFG program
via the ADDITIONAL SETUP INFORMATION menu item. Shown below is the
EMS/XMS configuration option as it will appear on the screen:


SHEZ can use EMS or XMS memory to reduce its memory

requirements. SHEZ will first try to use EMS and then XMS if

EMS memory is not available. You can tell SHEZ to only use EMS,

only use XMS, not to use either, or to try XMS first then EMS.


At the prompt enter EX to use EMS then XMS,
OR enter XE to use XMS then EMS,
OR enter E to use only EMS,
OR enter X to use only XMS,
OR enter to spaces to not use EMS or XMS.

Enter EMS-XMS usage as described above->EX


You can over-ride the memory usage options through the use of
environment variables. See the section titled ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE
for more information.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -60-

SPEECH FRIENDLY INTERFACE

Release 7.1 of SHEZ implements a new feature called Speech Friendly
Interface, (SFI). This feature makes SHEZ more friendly to users with
speech synthesizer boards, (these enable the blind users to read the
computer display). The SFI interface has been implemented in three
parts. In addition the Copyright box will not appear in the upper
right corner of the display, leaving the screen a little cleaner.

The first SFI feature is that most dialog boxes, error message boxes
and informational boxes will be displayed using DOS BIOS routines
instead of writing directly to the video buffers. This feature should
make interfacing SHEZ to a speech synthesizer a little eaiser.

The second SFI feature will position the cursor on the currently
active screen line. This feature has been implemented when viewing the
DOS directory listing, the compressed files listing, the help screens,
and the drop down menu system. When possible the cursor will be
placed to the right of the first pertinent data appearing on the
screen.

However there are some dialog boxes, and prompt boxes that this
positioning is not 100% accurate. To solve this problem, the third
part of the SFI interface includes the ability to "FREEZE" the screen,
and use the cursor keys to walk around the screen.

To freeze the screen press the ` (left single quote character). This
will place the screen in a frozen state UNTIL YOU PRESS THE ` KEY
AGAIN. When the freeze frame is activated a low to high beep sound
will be made. When exiting the freeze frame feature a high to low
beep will be made. While in the frozen state the following cursor
movement keys are active:

CURSOR-UP = move cursor up one line
CURSOR-DOWN = move cursor down one line
CURSOR-LEFT = move cursor left on character
CURSOR-RIGHT = move cursor right one character
PAGE-UP = move cursor to upper left corner of screen
PAGE-DOWN = move cursor to lower left corner of screen
CONTROL-HOME = move cursor to first significant character on
current line. (A significant character is a
character having an ascii code greater then a
decimal 20, and less than a decimal 123)
HOME = move cursor to where is originally was before you
started fussing with it.

The SFI support routines are activated by using the SHEZCFG program,
and setting the SFI option to Y.


4DOS AND NDOS SUPPORT

Shez offers limited support for certain capabilities when running
under 4DOS and NDOS. Shez can automatically determine if it is
running under either of these systems and will active support for
their facilities automatically. The following facilities are
supported:


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -61-

1) When viewing a DOS directory display pressing the ALT-D keys will
display the 4DOS/NDOS description entries if any exist.

2) When viewing a DOS directory display pressing the ALT-U keys will
allow you to UPDATE and/or ADD description entries to the
currently highlighted file. This will also active the ALT-D
option automatically. When adding a description to a file if the
4DOS/NDOS DESCRIPT.ION file does not exist one will be created,
if the file already exists it will be updated.

3) When copying, moving, or renaming files the 4DOS/NDOS description
will be carried along with the file. If the file is renamed the
entry in the DESCIPT.ION file will be modified accordingly.

4) AT THE CURRENT TIME SHEZ DOES NOT MODIFY THE DESCIPT.ION FILE
WHEN YOU DELETE A FILE. THE FILES DESCRIPTION WILL REMAIN IN THE
4DOS/NDOS DESCRIPT.ION FILE.

USING 4DOS INTERNAL LIST COMMAND

SHEZ can be configured to use the internal LIST command of 4DOS as the
default file viewer. To configure SHEZ for this feature, use the
SHEZCFG program and select option 5 and press F10 until the menu
titled OTHER PROGRAMS TO USE appears. Answer Y to the question, "When
running under 4DOS use 4DOS internal list command". You may also
enter blanks in the area that asks for the Viewing-program to use.


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -62-

SUPPORT FOR SPANNED ZIP FILES

SHEZ now offers support for ZIP files that span multiple floppies.
Due to the nature of these types of ZIP files SHEZ will limit the
operations that can be performed on spanned ZIP files. SHEZ will
allow you to create spanned ZIP files and extract from spanned ZIP
files, but SHEZ will not allow you to modify the ZIP file after it is
created. You may not ADD, DELETE, RENAME, CONVERT, or add comments to
the spanned file. If you attempt to perform an illegal operation SHEZ
will display a dialog box informing you that the operation selected
can not be performed. Also it should be noted that SHEZ, in it's
current release, can only handle a maximum of 3500 files per
compressed file. If you create a spanned ZIP file containing more
than 3500 files SHEZ can only process the first 3500 files it finds in
the ZIP file.

Normally when you extract files from a spanned ZIP file PKUNZIP will
ask that you insert the last disk of the backup set first. SHEZ
operates just the reverse. When reading spanned ZIP files SHEZ will
ask that you insert the first disk of the backup set and each
subsequent disk. In effect it reads the ZIP from front to back. This
may seem strange, but when SHEZ is done reading the spanned ZIP file
the last disk of the backup set will already be in the drive, so when
you perform an extract you will not have to insert the last disk of
the set as required by PKUNZIP.

Support was added for spanned ZIP files due to numerous user requests.
If you are using the spanned disk feature to backup a hard drive
please keep in mind that SHEZ will only be able to handle a maximum of
3500 files in the ZIP file.


SUPPORT FOR UC2 COMPRESSED FILES

SHEZ now offers support for UC2, Ultracompressor II, type compressed
files. SHEZ can convert to/from UC2 compressed files to/from any
other compressed file format without the need of the file conversion
.BAT files that are distributed with the UC2 package. There is a
special menu item that allows you to configure the UC2 program via
it's internal configuration option. The menu item is contained in the
Opts main menu and is titled, FULL UC2 CONFIGURATION. When
configuring SHEZ please be sure to specify the UC.EXE file as the
program to run when processing UC2 type compressed files. Since SHEZ
has it's own memory management routines builtin you do not need to use
the Stealth technology that is available in the UC2 package.

SHEZ does support FRESHEN and UPDATE commands if you are running
release 2 of UC2.. SHEZ does support the storing and retrieval of
"file versions" as documented in the UC2 manual. It also supports
storing and retrieval of files stored in directories within UC2 files.

| SUPPORT FOR WINDOWS TYPE COMPRESSED FILES

| Shez supports the viewing and expanding of Windows type compressed
| files. Most of these type files have an underscore in the file
| extension. Shez uses the "native" EXPAND.EXE program to expand the
| compressed file. The EXPAND.EXE program must be located in a
directory that is specified in your path statement. If it is not you
must copy the file to a directory that is listed in your path


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -63-

statement. The 10.3 release of SHEZ handles these files differently
| than the 10.2 release of SHEZ. To view a windows type compressed
| file. Highlight the file in the DOS directory screen of SHEZ and
| press the enter key. SHEZ will display the compressed and expanded
| file sizes. Press the enter key again and SHEZ will invoke the
| default file view program allowing you to view the file. To expand
| the compressed file, instead of pressing the enter key, press the E
| key to expand the file. During both of these processes SHEZ will
| prompt you for a character to replace the underscore character in the
| file extension.

| SUPPORT FOR INFOZIP ZIP AND UNZIP

| If you are using the INFOZIP ZIP and UNZIP programs you must run the
| SHEZCFG program and under the Program setup screen set the INFOZIP
| field to a Y. If this is not donw SHEZ will think you are using the
| PKZIP and PKUNZIP programs.

APPENDIX - 2 - SHEZ.INI FILE

;********************************************************************
; SHEZ External viewer specification file. *
; (SAMPLE FILE ONLY!!!!!) *
; *
; AFTER MODIFYING THIS FILE IT MUST *
; BE RENAME TO: *
; SHEZ.INI *
; AND THEN COPIED TO A DIRECTORY THAT IS *
; IN YOUR PATH STATEMENT. *
; *
; *
;FORMAT OF FILE: *
; Each line must end with a Carriage return, Line feed. *
; Everything to the right of a semicolon treated as comments. *
; *
; External viewer programs are specified as follows: *
; EXT = PROGRAM *
; WHERE ext is the file extension (DO NOT ENTER THE PERIOD!) *
; program is the program to execute based on the selected *
; file extension. *
; $f indicates to SHEZ where to place the filename *
; when executing the program. *
;EXAMPLE: *
; C=E:\UTY\QEDIT.EXE $F *
; *
; If the highlighted file in SHEZ is HELP.C then SHEZ will *
; attempt to execute E:\UTY\QEDIT.EXE HELP.C *
; *
;********************************************************************
; ADVANCED FEATURES *
; *
;SPECIFYING A STARTUP DIRECTORY: *
; To tell SHEZ to change to a specific directory before running *
; the specified external file viewer use the vertical bar *
; character to separate the startup directory name from the *
; viewer command as shown below: *
; *
;GIF=E:\GIF\VPIC.EXE $F|G:\GIF\VPIC *
; *
; *
;TELLING SHEZ TO PAUSE AFTER RUNNING THE VIEWER: *
; SHEZ can pause before returning to itself allowing you to *
; view the contents of the screen after the external viewer *
; has been executed. This is accomplished by placing the *
; character immediately after the equal sign. *
; *
;GIF=~E:\GIF\VPIC.EXE $F|G:\GIF\VPIC *
; *
; *
;********************************************************************

[External Viewers] ;THIS IS A REQUIRED ENTRY, TELLS SHEZ WHERE
;THE EXTERNAL VIEWER DATA BEGINS

WP =WPVIEW.EXE $F ;Run wpview.exe for file with .wp extension

C=E.EXE $F ;Run e.exe for file with .c extension


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -76-


;********************************************************************
; SETTING UP PRINTERS *
; *
;Up to three user defined printers can be defined. Each printer *
;definition requires it's own section name. The section name *
;is: [PRINTERx] where x is 1,2, or 3. *
;Each printer section must have the following keyword defined: *
; *
;NAME *
; user defined name of printer (25 characters or less) *
;SETUP *
; printer setup string *
;CHARS-PER-LINE *
; maximum number of characters per line *
;LINE-PER-PAGE *
; maximum number of lines per page *
;ENDUP *
; printer endup string (THIS IS OPTIONAL) *
; *
;The printer SETUP and ENDUP strings can be up to 100 characters in *
;length. The strings CAN NOT contain carriage return or line feed *
;characters. If these must be included in the string use the $ *
;character to enter their HEX equivalent. I.E. a carriage return *
;would be entered as $0d. The $ character indicates to SHEZ that the*
;next two characters are to be interpreted as HEX. For example to *
;enter the ASCII ESC character into the setup string use the *
;following in your string: $1b. *
; *
;Each printer definition can also optionally use the PORT keyword *
;to define which LPT port use. If the PORT keyword is used the *
;only valid values are LPT1 through LPT9. If the PORT keyword is *
;not used SHEZ will then use the LPT port as defined in the SHEZCFG *
;program. *
;EXAMPLE: to print to port 3: *
;PORT=LPT3 *
;********************************************************************

SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -77-

;******************************************************************
; SETTING UP USER MENUS *
; *
;Up to 20 user defined menu items may be defined in this section. *
;Each menu item MUST have a NAME parameter and a PROGRAM parameter*
;defined. The NAME parameter is the text that will appear drop *
;down menu when the uSer menu option is selected. The PROGRAM *
;parameter defines what program or batch file will be executed *
;when the item is selected. The rules for defining these two *
;keyword parameters are as follows: *
; *
;NAME *
; User defined text of 25 characters or less. This text will *
; appear on the drop down menu. *
; *
;PROGRAM *
; The program or batch file to execute when the selection is *
; chosen. *
; *
; *
;SPECIFYING A STARTUP DIRECTORY: *
; To tell SHEZ to change to a specific directory before running *
; the specified user program use the vertical bar character to *
; separate the startup directory name from the program/batch *
; file to execute as shown below: *
; *
; PROGRAM=E:\GIF\VPIC.EXE|G:\GIF\VPIC *
; *
; *
;TELLING SHEZ TO PAUSE AFTER RUNNING A PROGRAM *
; SHEZ can pause before returning to itself allowing you to view*
; the contents of the screen after the program has been *
; executed. This is accomplished by placing the ~ character *
; immediately after the equal sign. *
; *
; PROGRAM=~E:\GIF\VPIC.EXE|G:\GIF\VPIC *
; *
;PASSING A FILE TO A USER DEFINED PROGRAM *
; By using the $f variable when defining the PROGRAM to execute *
; you can pass the currently highlighted filename to an external*
; program. The $f tell SHEZ where to place the filename when *
; launching a user specified program. *
; *
; Two other variables can also be used, the $a and $m variable. *
; These variables only have meaning if you launched a user menu *
; item when selecting a member of a compressed file. The $a *
; variable will be replaced with the full compressed filename, *
; and the $m variable will be replaced with the name of the *
; selected member within the compressed file. For example: If *
; you are looking the contents of compressed file *
; D:\DOWN\SHEZXX.ZIP the highlighted item is SHEZ.EXE then the *
; $a variable will be replaced with D:\DOWN\SHEZXX.ZIP and the *
; $m variable will be replaced with SHEZ.EXE. *
; *
; The $f will also work when viewing the contents of a *
; compressed file. When viewing the contents of a compressed *
; file, if the $f characters are defined in the PROGRAM *
; specification, the highlighted file is extracted to a work *
; directory and the user program is launched. When the user *


SHEZ USER MANUAL Page -78-

; program is exited, SHEZ will then check the extracted works *
; file's time and date stamp. If the work file was updated SHEZ*
; will REFRESH the copy of the file in the compressed file. *
; *
; THERE ARE FIVE ADDITIONAL VARIABLES THAT CAN BE USED. *
; $CD will be replaced by the current drive, including the *
; colon. I.E. D: *
; $CP will be replaced by the current path, including the *
; trailing backslash. I.E. \UTILITY\ *
; $ED will be replaced by the extract drive, including the *
; colon. I.E. D: *
; $EP will be replaced by the extract path, including the *
; trailing backslash. I.E. \EXTRACT\ *
; $? will tell SHEZ to prompt the user for the information *
; to replace. *

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
