Siren is a utility to notify you of a external protocol download completion.

Examples :

SIREN This will set the alarm to go off in 10 secs (Default)

SIREN nn This will set the alarm to go off in nn secs

SIREN ? This will display the help screen, and info on how to
reach me via modem, or post office

Just select which command is best for you and add it to the end of
your batch file. SIREN will notify you when the computer is done.


This program is very helpful for doing that BIG Zmodem Batch d/l
and forgetting about it ... Just set the amount of delay time,
and it'll go off!!

Please let me know of any additions/changes I can make to SIREN that
would help you.

We hope you enjoy this program. All comments and suggestions are
appreciated. Stay on the look out for more 'SoFtWare Group' products!

1.0 Probably shouldn't have been released. Had a bug which caused it
to work only some of the time. 1.1 fixes this bug.

1.1 Bugs fixed ... nothing much new.

1.2 Skipped this update because i felt like it!

1.3 SIREN now sounds the alarm until a key is pressed. Also siren
now restores the screen that was there before SIREN was called.
